How to Add Background in Ms Teams


There are many options available in Microsoft Teams for the meeting background. 

You have a choice of:
  • Selected pictures
  • Custom image
  • Blurring your background
Before or during a meeting, any one of the three options can be changed. For each of them, we'll go over every step of the setup procedure.
Note: PC and Mac client applications can currently use background effects. On iOS devices, background blur is also supported.
How do I set a background image for a Microsoft Teams meeting before it begins?

  • Toggle the button to the on position to make sure your camera is on.
