Over the years, Microsoft has been improving its video calling platform by adding new features, and the company recently introduced an option to set up dynamic animated backgrounds. This allows users to mask their actual background with a digital wallpaper.

Platforms like Zoom and even Google Meet have been offering custom backgrounds for a while now. The feature has been available for a while on Microsoft Teams and other video conferencing platforms. With the latest update, Microsoft has added more backgrounds. However, even now, there is no option to add or upload custom backgrounds.

Here is how you can customise your Microsoft Team by adding a dynamic animated background to stand out in your next e-meeting.
