Backgrounds in Teams

(19 June 2020)

There is now a set of University themed background images for the Teams client on managed PCs and laptops. You can change your background before a meeting starts or even during a meeting. Please read on for instructions.

Change your background before your meeting starts. 

Turn your camera on and then click on then click the small hashed square by the middle Teams options button. 

Your background options will display on the right. Scroll down to the desired image, click to select and then click the Apply button. Whilst the image looks mirrored, it appears the correct way to other people on the call.

Change your background during a meeting.

To alter your background after you have joined a meeting, click the ellipses icon (...) then select Show background effects.

Your background options will display on the right. Scroll down to the desired image, click to select and then click the Apply button. Whilst the image looks mirrored, it appears the correct way to other people on the call.
