How to use Microsoft Teams custom backgrounds support for video calls ?

Microsoft has released new updates to its unified workplace collaboration platform Teams which will allow users to pick background effects similar to controversial video conferencing Zoom app. This app uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to blur the world behind it . Eventually, the users will have the option to upload their own photos for use and building the context blur. 

Zoom application provides support for custom backgrounds that are built into the program itself, static images and video loops that can be used as backgrounds for motion. Microsoft will carry out its ‘lift hand’ feature for video calls early, too. With this, users can warn others by clicking on a dedicated ‘lift hand’ icon that they have something to say. 


Microsoft has said that it will add real-time noise reduction later this year which be built on AI to minimize disruptive background noise like noisy typing or a barking dog in Team meetings. Teams hit 44 million active daily users (DAUs) last month — a 40 per cent leap from 20 million DAUs in November 2019 — as people stayed home and worked.

4. Now you can see a pile of options pop up above the counter. 

5. Look up and press the ‘View context effects’ button. 

6. Pick the right impact and you’re good to go. 

The functionality is still new to teams and in future updates, a lot more choices will come up. Zoom also provides custom context support that is integrated into the software itself. Those involve static images and video loops which can be used as backgrounds for motion. Microsoft will carry out its ‘lift hand’ feature for video calls early, too. For this, users will warn others by clicking on a dedicated ‘lift hand’ icon that they have something to say.
