Microsoft Teams finally adds custom background support, just like Zoom
If youâ€™re a Microsoft Teams user whoâ€™s enviously watched Zoom users install fun, silly virtual backgrounds to mess with their coworkers, your wait is over. Microsoft Teams now supports custom backgrounds, the company said Thursday afternoon.
Microsoft announced the ability to add your own custom backgrounds more than a year ago, but the company hadnâ€™t yet delivered on its promiseâ€”even the third Teams anniversary came and went without support. However, Microsoft announced the update in a tweet late on Thursday, ending the drought. Itâ€™s not clear, unfortunately, on what platforms the feature will be supported, or whether all users will be receiving the new feature immediately.
