Microsoft last month released a new Skype Insider Preview build for its Desktop apps that came with background blur feature during video calls. This feature is now available to all Skype Desktop users on Windows, Mac and Linux.
Whether you want the focus of the call to only be on you, or you’re in a busy place that doesn’t need to be seen, blur my background will subtly blur everything except you!
You can enable this feature during a call in two ways, by right clicking on your own video or through the new on-hover video settings. The new on-hover settings to the camera button allows you to quickly switch cameras or turn on blur my background with ease.
