Microsoft Launches Microsoft Teams Custom Background Gallery

Microsoft Teams uses a highly trained model that sets you apart from your background and can impose a custom background on top of everything else, making it quick and easy to start expressing yourself in all your meetings.

Microsoft doesn’t think Teams should just be around to work and to celebrate the holiday season, they have launched an online gallery of custom Christmas-themed Microsoft Teams backgrounds and are encouraging people to upload their own favorites.

Over time, Microsoft will expand this gallery to include different events, holidays, celebrations, and more.

  1. Click on the three-dot menu and then select “Show background effects ”Click“ Show background effects “
