Custom Background in Teams meeting

With all the hype with video chat and the customization of Teams now I figured a quick blog post of the “How-To” would be cool.

There are two ways you can do this, the first way is if the option has not made it out to your tenant yet. Get your custom picture and upload to %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds then you can create a meet now to test.

Meet now can simply be created by going to the calendar tab –> Meet now in the top right

Once that is done you can click on the 3 … (More Action) Select “show Background effects” In the list you should see you custom background. Select it and you are all set.

Now, If your tenant has the latest update you can do the same as above but simply upload your custom background by selecting the “Upload Image” button.

Select your background that you would like

you can preview or apply and turn on video.

At this point you are all set.
