External Blog Post

Today, we’re excited to announce the general availability of video filters in Teams!

Microsoft Teams has announced the general availability of video filters for users to better express themselves and remove unwanted distractions during meetings. The AI-powered video filters range from animated frames to styles that can change the hue of the video. The filters are built on the Teams Platform infrastructure and provided as apps that can be added to the meeting experience.

The first-party app called Custom Filters is being launched initially, and users can apply the filters even before joining a meeting from the lobby. These features empower users to feel their best during meetings and bring their personality to each interaction.

This feature is built keeping privacy and compliance in mind. We have ensured that –

  1. The tenant admin has the control to enable/disable the video filter apps’ availability in their tenant. These apps are enabled by default.

a. Refer to Manage your apps in the Microsoft Teams admin center to disable these apps

  1. The tenant admin cannot pre-install these apps as they require explicit user consent.
  2. Before using the filters, you will need to provide explicit consent to the app to access your video feed.
  3. You can turn off these filters by uninstalling the filter app.
