Good news for all the Skype users; this is how you can blur your background. “Background blur in Skype and Teams uses artificial intelligence (AI)—trained in human form detection—to keep you in focus during your call.
This technology is also trained to detect your hair, hands, and arms, making a call with background blur just as relaxed and easy as a regular video call.”, explains Skype.
Popular video calling service Skype has introduced a new background blur feature which uses artificial intelligence to obscures the backdrop while leaving the subject in sharp focus.
“Background blur takes the stress out of turning on your video and puts the focus where it belongs—on you,” explains Skype. “With a simple toggle, right-click, or even through your Skype settings, your background will be instantly and subtly blurred, leaving just you as the only focal point.”
Skype further added, “We do our best to make sure that your background is always blurred, but we cannot guarantee that your background will always be blurred.”
Here’s how to set it up for your next Skype call on your desktop:
- While on a call, hover your cursor over the video camera button at the bottom of your screen, and click the ‘Blur my background’ toggle to activate the feature.
- While on a call, right-click your camera feed at the top right corner of your screen, and click the ‘Blur my background’ option in the pop-up menu.
- Start a video chat with any of your contacts.
- Click on the gear icon at the top right of your call screen to open the Audio & Video Settings menu.
Background blur is available on most desktops and laptops with the latest version of Skype.
