How many times have you video called your parents without cleaning up the messy room in the background? Innumerable times perhaps. Now, Skype is giving you one simple hack to avoid the reprimands.
Starting this week, Skype is rolling out background blur in Skype video calls. The feature is similar to the background blur in Microsoft teams and lets you have a video call that lets the messy environment around you as it is.
The feature uses artificial intelligence to blur out only the mess and not your hair, hands or arms. It is available on most desktops and laptops running the latest version of Skype.
