How to customise your video call backgrounds
Are you tired of staring at a boring wall or messy room during video calls? Fear not, because we’ve got just the thing to jazz up your Microsoft Teams calls: Customised backgrounds!
Not only can custom backgrounds add a touch of professionalism to your internal calls, but they can also represent your company in external meetings. And lets be real, hiding a cluttered home office has never been more important.
Luckily, Microsoft Teams has got you covered with a variety of pre-made backgrounds to choose from, or you can create your own custom background to showcase your company’s brand identity.
How to set up a customisable Teams background:
- Create your corporate background: First, create a 1920 x 1080 pixel graphic to be used as your background. Once your happy with it, save and export the image to a JPG or PNG file.
2. Start your video call and show background effects: Open Microsoft Teams and start up your video call. Then, select additional options (the button with the three dots) and click on “Apply background effects.”
3. Add new, upload, and apply: You’ll then be given the option to chose an existing Teams default background or “Add new”. Select “Add new” and choose your image to upload. Once uploaded, select your background, preview it, and then apply it to make it live
And voila! You’re now ready to impress your colleagues and clients with your customised background during your next Teams call! Remember – if you have text on your image, it will appear reverted like ours as the Teams camera is flipped when looking at your own screen.
