Filters can be used to change the background color as well. Zoom and background filter are two separate options.

The background will replace the complete background, while the filter will add additional effects to the background. For example, the impact of a softer, warmer or cooler tone/hue.

Filters that add emojis or other types of decorations can also be used. The approach is uncomplicated.
