Enable gif backgrounds for Microsoft Teams

New Contributor

When you select a gif as a background effect, it just appears as a still picture and is not animated.

Please add support for gifs so that if you set a gif as your background effect, it is animated.


Thank you!

@ryanhall, Where are upi trying to add gif image?
You can go to UserVoice  and raise/vote for this.



where I add my custom background effects:

~/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Teams/Backgrounds/Uploads


I will add the request there as well.


If you need it right now you can use OBS here is a guide for that.
