Skype said that the feature - which is similar to the blurring added to Microsoft Teams previous year - uses artificial intelligence to keep the focus on the caller. The video conferencing service is introducing blurred backgrounds so you can obscure your mess with dignity.
Using artificial intelligence, Skype blurs the user's surroundings while keeping the user in focus.
Microsoft is pushing background blurs as a stress removing feature for desktop Skype users. The feature does not interfere with the usual process associated with making Skype video calls.
With Skype releasing the new blur your background feature, such a scenario as mentioned above would be the least of your concerns! Once you right click on that button, you will find the "blur my background" toggle and switching it on will seamlessly put your background out of focus. Microsoft has not given any exact date about when the feature will be available on mobile devices. Oh, and you'll need to update the app to the latest version to use it.
Picture this: You are ready to appear for an important Skype interview with a prospective client when you realize that you have forgotten to do your cleaning chores around the house! It has been trained to detect your hair, hands, and arms, which enables you to make a call with background blur in a more relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. "We do our best to make sure that your background is always blurred, but we can not guarantee that your background will always be blurred", the team said. This means you should not have something going on in the background that you do not want to risk being seen by others.
