With the service offering a wide level of support for custom and third-party backdrops, users have the option to add almost any image they want to their Zoom chats.

In fact, the popular network's website has an entire page dedicated to backgrounds, offering a variety of images and from some its most popular shows.

Once an image has been either uploaded or chosen, it is then just a matter of hitting save for the changes to take effect.
It is worth keeping in mind that once a background is added and used, it technically becomes the default backdrop going forward. Although, removing or replacing the Game of Thrones or Westworld background can be done at any time by repeating the same Zoom background instructions once again.
