Change your background in a Teams meeting or a video call

Each person in a meeting or a video call in Teams has the option to choose from a variety of pre-loaded backgrounds, as well as the option to blur your own background or upload your own custom background. To change your background, click on the ellipsis or 3 dots as shown circled in the Teams Meeting toolbar, and then choose Show background effects.

 

 

You can choose to blue your background or select from one of the available backgrounds within Teams.

 

CUSTOM BACKGROUNDS

To upload your own background, select Add New at the top and browse on your computer to select a JPEG, JPG, BMP, or PNG file. If you would like to use a Stevens branded background picture in Microsoft Teams, choose from any of the pictures listed here, as they will work for both Microsoft Teams and Zoom.

 

 

Once you add your new background, scroll to the bottom in the list of background settings to select your picture and then select APPLY at the bottom.

Your new background picture should now be visible.
