Microsoft, the American tech giant officially rolled out a new feature on Skype wherein the users can blur their background during video calls. Well, Microsoft is solving that problem this week by adding background blur to Skype video calls. The company stated that background blurring uses artificial intelligence to detect hair, hands and arms to identify a user and blur everything else in the background. As now, Skype video conferencing service is offering blurred background feature so you can hide your mess with honor. So, from now onwards your background will be out of focus. Background blur is available on desktops and laptops running the latest version of Skype, but the feature is still somewhat experimental. The feature does not interfere with the usual process associated with making Skype video calls.
What this means to you: Skype's background blurring doesn't totally obscure what's behind you the way a green-screen effect would, but it's effective at keeping the focus on what matters. This feature will no doubt help you blur out everything that is behind letting the other participant focus only on the call rather than the background. But Skype is now touting its new ability to blur. From the pull-up menu select "Blur my background" toggle to turn the feature on then close the menu. For Skype users, starting today, you'll now be able to do just that with the app's latest version. When you want controls, you can bring them back by simply tapping once again.
