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.

@Abhijit_MSFT 

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.

@Andreas Thuresson  Too much work required; easier if Microsoft developers gives us this function in the next update.
