Microsoft Teams Video Chats Will Now Have Custom Backgrounds

The tech giant explains that the capability builds upon background blur that uses AI to blur the environment behind you.

If you have not tried Microsoft team video as you work from home, please do! One of the great things about Zoom is the ability to change backgrounds. You can use any image you want to cover up the laundry piling up behind you, for instance, or to ensure your privacy in calls with workmates you don’t really know.

Now that most people are turning to video calling platforms while working from home, Microsoft has rolled out a Teams update that also gives it the capability to change your background environment.

While you can’t upload your own image yet as you can with Zoom — Microsoft promises to launch that feature later — you can choose from several backgrounds provided by the collaboration platform.

In addition, the latest version of Teams includes the “raise hand” icon, which you can click to let the room know if you have something to say during a meeting. Finally, it introduces the “end meeting” option that gives organizers the power to end a call with the single click of a button.

It was apparently a top educator request, perhaps so teachers and professors can quickly end calls when an online class devolves into chaos.
