Hi @lewisryan343 


Please kindly refer to this article: Change your background for a Teams meeting - Office Support ( The article discusses steps to change your background before a meeting starts and during a meeting.



  • If you don't see this option in the menu, the feature might not be available on your device yet.
  • For now, Linux users aren't able to use this feature.
  • Background effects won't be available to you if you're using Teams through optimized virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI).

Hope this helps.
