I notice that the 'Simple green screen app' available in the MS Store is not in the Teams add-a-tab list of apps.

AFAIK no, but you can however use third party software to use a greenscreen then pipe that into a teams meeting

Have a look at a example here: ( 2nd speaker )

Thanks @adam deltinger, would that limited to Teams Live Events or could it work for Teams meetings as well?

I believe you can use the virtual cam in a teams meeting too! @Chris Webb
Yeah, you can use it in meetings, see the part where I had "Chris from yesterday" show up, that was in Teams meeting, all those effects where in a Teams meeting during that Usergroup that I did.

You can use OBS, a chroma key filter on your input, and output it to the OBSCamera plugin I showed then pipe that into Teams. Piping audio over is a much harder issue, but if all you want is greenscreen and you still use your mic for audio it's easy.
But also, keep in mind, when you use it in the meeting, you only get a 1/4 screen realestate. You can't fullscreen your video feed or pin your feed as the primary as of yet. If you want fullscreen you'll have to use live events.
That’s technically not green screen support ;)
Well, I it was thought it was close enough ;)
