How do I change the background during a Microsoft Teams meeting?

To alter your background after you've already joined a meeting, go to your meeting controls and select More actions  More options button  > Show background effects.

Select Blur to blur your background, or choose from the available images to replace it. 

You'll be able to preview your chosen background to see how it looks before you apply it. 



  • If you don't see Show background effects as an option in the menu, the feature might not be available on your device yet.

  • Linux users aren't able to use this feature at this time.
