Changing your Video Background
1. JOIN YOUR CALL
During the process of joining a call, toggle your video camera icon to on and click Background filters
Alternatively, if you have already joined a call, click on the three dots, and select Apply background effects
2. BROWSE THE TEAMS BACKGROUND EFFECTS
A panel with the available Background Effects options will appear on the right side of the screen.
Select Add new
A new window will open. Select your custom image from where it is saved on your computer (e.g. Downloads or Pictures) and click open.
3. TESTING OUT YOUR NEW BACKGROUND
Once you’ve selected your image of choice, click Preview at the bottom of the screen to try it out. Nobody else in the call will be able to see your new background effect.
Don’t worry if the image looks back-to-front to you – This is normal!
If you’re happy with how it looks – press Apply and turn on video!
4. ENJOY YOUR CUSTOM BACKGROUND!
Now, any time you pop up on your colleagues’ screens during this call, you’ll have the background you have chosen to use behind you.
Custom background images appear flipped to the person using them (e.g. text is the wrong way around) but it will appear correct for the other participants of the call.
