How to blur your video background on Microsoft Teams

Maintaining social connection while working remotely is important. Using video on Microsoft Teams gives you a great way to engage with your colleagues while working from home.

Working remotely also means you could be based in your spare room, kitchen, or shed- anywhere, really.

Teams video lets you blur the background of your video calls, leaving just you clear. You can start a video with your background blurred or choose to blur as a call is underway.

Here’s how

  1. To blur your background during a video meeting in Teams, during a call click the three dots in the bottom toolbar.
  2. Depending on whether your camera is already on there should be a “blur background” or “start camera with blurred background” option.
  3. Click this and your background will be blurred.
