Sometimes when you are having a meeting you might not want everyone to see the background of the room you’re in and you don’t have to.

Microsoft Teams offers a great range of virtual backgrounds to choose from. These backgrounds range from professional office spaces, domestic environments and fun backgrounds with balloons and beach scenes, if you’d rather be on holiday! If you'd like something a little festive, then the University is offering a range of themed backgrounds to download.

You can also personalise the background even more but uploading your own photos and using them instead. It’s perfect for the office winter party. Of course, you don't have to use an image, if you'd prefer to just blur your background, you can do that too. These changes can be made before or during a Teams meeting.

Visit the University of Bath Microsoft Learn site to discover how to change your background.
