Microsoft Teams now lets you upload your own photos as background images on video calls


The Company announced, Custom images and other background effects are only available for scheduled Teams meetings. Teams have a background blurring effect and a library of pre-installed images to allow.

Zoom already, allow its users to use custom images as background images. Due to an increase in traffic in these Video sessions, Microsoft planned to bring new features to attract users.



One caution about using background images in Teams: the company says using the blurring effect. Or a custom image may not prevent others on a video call from being able to see sensitive information.

In addition to the custom images, Microsoft also rolled out some new features for free users of Teams. Including the ability to schedule meetings and send out invites instead of just using the “Meet Now” option.
