Putting up colorful backdrops your business conference calls with Microsoft Teams is now available to all users. As young professionals or even stay-at-home parents transition to home-based work, Microsoft rolls out the ‘custom backgrounds’ as an additional feature on their video call service.
Designed as a collaboration tool for those who are in the field of education and business, every user will be able to choose a customized image as your background for every video call you make. In the coming months, you will also be permitted to craft your personalized visual background.
Currently, each user is allowed to create conference video calls with up to 250 users on it. You will also have access to more than one device if your school, office, or organization has access to Microsoft 365. This will pave the way for town hall meetings to be held virtually instead of on a constricted place to possibly control the threat of coronavirus.
Due to the security issues that were previously reported against the services of Zoom, many works from home employees and students from online schools look for other software apps like Microsoft Teams. This will now pave the way for a tight competition between the developers of Microsoft and Zoom to improve its quality and user safety programs.
You can check out the official site of the Microsoft Teams if you want to try the software for free. Microsoft will also be pushing a wider use of the service among consumers in the last quarter of 2020. The product usage has surged for over 1000% of video chats and up to 3 billion minute calls in a day since March.
