Is there a way in MS Teams to change or 'try on' different backgrounds before or without starting a new meeting?

I have been able to upload backgrounds and test them during conference calls, but have not been able to view them outside of meetings.

Click on the third option which is;

Then you'll see the available backgrounds appear in the right pane, and you can try them without joining.
