Custom virtual backgrounds for Microsoft TeamsNo need for a green screen, or even a blank wall. Teams uses a highly trained model that differentiates you from your background and can impose a custom background over everything else, making it easy and fast to start expressing yourself in all your meetings.

With the whole world turning to video, companies are getting creative with collections of backgrounds you can easily download and then upload to Teams. This is a gallery of images to start choosing from.

Over time we will be expanding this gallery to include different events, holidays, celebrations, and more!

Custom backgrounds are also a great way to promote within your own organization special events or stir up excitement around best background awards to keep meetings fun and unique!
