Microsoft is finally bringing blurred backgrounds for video calls and meetings to its Teams app for Android.
The move will bring it up to par with the Teams desktop app and the iOS app, which gained blurred backgrounds in April.
A Microsoft Teams engineer this week confirmed on its user feedback pages that the company is planning to add background blur support for Android although they didn’t give a timeline for its release.

Blurred background and custom background effects proved popular for the millions of people carrying out meetings from home during the pandemic. The feature is one way users can partially conceal distractions that may be happening during a video call or meeting. The detail was first spotted by MS Poweruser.
Microsoft is extending several other features from the Teams desktop app to Android in the coming months.
