Skype for iOS brings a new feature for the device. The new feature is the background blur in the video calling to iOS. The company updated its Skype for Desktop with a similar feature a few days back.
Here AI is extensively used for using this amazing background blur in the software. The working is simple – it focuses on you and blurs out everything. The AI can detect hairs, arms, and other essential parts so that it doesn’t affect the overall video call experience. It is essentially helpful when your background is kind of messy.
Google is also working on bringing this feature to its Meet app. Although Microsoft is maintaining Teams, they still work on their golden apps like Skype.
As of now, only Skype for Desktop, iOS, iPadOS are getting this feature. As of now no news about the Android version is out yet.
