All of the background effects on Microsoft teams keep showing the background of my room. I've tried closing all the windows, adjusting different lighting levels, covering up the thing that is showing with something of a darker color, nothing is working. How does the Microsoft Teams camera identify the outline of someone's body and distinguish it from the room background, and what can I do to help resolve this?

Hi @Victor_K  I sometimes have the same experience, depending on the background I choose.  The best way I know to improve video is to use a green screen app, like this one: Use Webaround Green Screen to Get a Perfect Virtual Background in Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet...
