Have been struggling from last few days, trying to find solution for problem in finding the option of Change Background while in the call. I have uninstalled desktop app, reinstalled latest version. It is not even creating the folder in the apps data. Can some one help. I am on (You have Microsoft Teams Version 1.3.00.8663 (64-bit). It was last updated on 5/1/20), with Windws 10 on Lenova Yoga Book. tea

To be able to set background effects you need to be using the desktop client on a PC or Mac. If you couldn’t use the background blur feature on your computer previously, this feature won’t be able to you now, as it requires a modern CPU that supports AVX2.
If you don’t have the background effects option yet but do have background blur – don’t worry, the feature will arrive in your client. If you want to see if it’s ready to download, select your profile picture in the top right-hand corner, then from the menu choose Check for updates.

@HIPRM As said in the post you replied to, you also need to have a laptop that supports a certain hardware capability in the CPU called AVX2, if you laptop is more than about 5 years old, or is very basic, then it's probably doesn't have the hardware required.

@Steven Collier - thanks, yeah I have a fairly recent laptop from Dell. It has a 7th gen Intel process and was made in 2018. Since I am able to use the blur feature, I know I have AVX2.

@FranciscoLopez - I have a Dell Latitude 3390 2-in-1. I'm using 64-bit Teams version 1.3.00.4461. What version are you on? When I try to update it says I have the latest version.

I am struggling for the past two weeks in teaching my students, because the "show background effects" is not there in the three dots menu in teams. I came across your explanation for why I don't have this option.
Can you help me to know which computers support the AVX graphics. I was searching for a laptop which support AVX, and all what I found does not state this action. Most of the laptops have graphic cards such as (nVidia GeForcer) or (intel HD Graphics 615) or (Radeon graphic processor). They does not indicate whether they support the AVX or not.
I will appreciate it if you will have any answer for me.

Hi @Anubhav1270 !
If you are not able to view your background effects in MST, Try Updating it manually. Or press Ctrl+comma, and then select general and then go down and check on "Turn on New Meeting Experience"
