Welcome to Business Tip Tuesday!
Today we will be sharing a tip from one of the top collaborations and remote work solutions used by millions worldwide, Microsoft Teams. This software offers unlimited chat, online meetings and video calling, but if you want to avoid an embarrassing moment during a video call, don’t forget to blur your background.
How can Users Blur Backgrounds in MS Teams?
First, open the Teams app.
Select a scheduled meeting to join in Teams. Note the meeting has to be a scheduled one. Press the Join button, which will open the video settings shown directly below.
Then toggle the middle slider option to activate background blur. That should blur the background in the video before users select to join the meeting.
Press the Join now button.
Already joined the meeting?
Users can still blur videos’ backgrounds after joining meetings.
To do that, click the … dots button to open a menu.
Click the Blur my background option.
Users can remove the blurred background effect by clicking the … button and selecting the Don’t blur background option.
That’s all you need to do to blur your background.
