Description Microsoft Teams now supports a green screen feature which provides an enhanced virtual background effect. Green screen improves the sharpness

Microsoft has launched a new green screen feature for Microsoft Teams that enhances the sharpness and clarity of virtual backgrounds during video calls. The feature is best used with a dedicated green screen but can also work with a plain green or clear background wall. However, the background must be flat and free of irregularities.

The green screen feature is available to everyone in the public preview channel of Microsoft Teams. To enable it, users must first apply a background effect in a Teams meeting and then select the color of the wall behind them or green if they have a dedicated green screen. The feature is only supported on Windows and macOS devices with Intel chips and is not currently available on AMD-powered laptops or Macs running M1 or M2 chips. The green screen feature will also disable any background blur and is not supported in Together Mode.

How to enable Green screen feature in Teams Meetings

Please make sure that you have applied a background effect in Teams meeting before enabling the green screen effect and chosen the correct backdrop color so that the effect is applied correctly. Please also ensure you have a solid color screen or clean background wall behind you.

  • After you join a meeting, click the “More” icon in the meeting toolbar, go to “Video effects.”
  • When the “Video effects” panel page is open, go to “Green Screen Settings” in Backgrounds section and click the link to turn on the Green screen toggle button under “Teams settings Devices Green screen.”
  • Click the backdrop icon and move your mouse cursor into the Preview box to manually pick backdrop color. For example, avoid picking a color that matches your clothing or props you intend to show on camera.
  • Return to your meeting.
