Enhancing your GoToMeeting sessions with a personalized background can elevate your presentation and add a personal touch. This article will walk you through the steps of how to add a background to your GoToMeeting sessions, with detailed instructions and my personal commentary.

To start, open the GoToMeeting application on your computer and sign in to your account. Once you are signed in, navigate to the settings menu by clicking on your profile picture or initials in the top-right corner of the screen, and then selecting “Settings” from the dropdown menu.

Step 2: Selecting a Background Image

Once you are in the settings menu, look for the “Backgrounds” option on the left-hand side of the screen. Click on it to access the background settings. Here, you will find a variety of preloaded background images to choose from.

Take a moment to explore the available options and choose a background image that aligns with the purpose and tone of your meeting. Whether you prefer a professional-looking backdrop or something more playful, GoToMeeting offers a range of choices to suit your preferences.

If you have a specific image in mind, you can also click on the “Upload” button to add a custom image from your computer. Make sure the image you choose is relevant and appropriate for the meeting you will be hosting.

Step 3: Applying the Background

After selecting a background image, click on the “Apply” or “Save” button to save your changes and apply the background to your GoToMeeting sessions. You may need to restart your GoToMeeting application for the changes to take effect.

Once the background is applied, it will be visible to all participants during your meetings. It adds a touch of personalization to your sessions and helps create a more engaging and professional environment.


Adding a background to your GoToMeeting sessions is a simple but effective way to add a personal touch and enhance the overall experience for both you and your participants. With the detailed steps provided above, you can easily customize your meetings and create a more engaging and visually appealing environment.

So go ahead, explore the background options and choose the one that resonates with you the most. Happy meeting!
