Microsoft recently released a new Skype Insider Preview build for its Desktop apps for Windows, Mac and Linux. This v8.37.76 update now allows you to blur your background during video calls.
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.
