If you are using Microsoft Teams during job meetings with your team, you may want to read this. Maybe somedays you wish you could hide that messy desk or not so tidy room. Well, that is possible now.

According to the company’s latest blog post, Microsoft Teams now offers users the opportunity to upload their own images for custom backgrounds. Moreover, they will be able to customize images and background effects during scheduled Teams meetings.

Users will be able to benefit from a background blurring effect feature from a library of pre-installed images in order to keep things from their room private. According to the company, the blurring effect or a custom image may not be enough to prevent others to have access to unwanted information.

Among the new features for free users of Teams, there is the ability to schedule meetings, send out invites, and add live captions to their calls. 

Although Microsoft Teams has gained some popularity during the pandemic, the company is still trying to catch up with Zoom, which has become huge among times of COVID-19 when video calls have turned into the new reality.
