Background blur for Mac
Please add the Background blur feature for Mac users!
MS Teams backgrounds was working on my iMac but has suddenly stopped - can anyone tell me why and provide a solution to the issue ?
Schade dass für MacOS keine vollwertige MSOffice-Version angeboten wird. Erst ein "verkrüppeltes" Excel, ein nicht vorhandenes Access und jetzt Teams ohne Hintergrundeffekte. Bitte nachrüsten! Vielen Dank
Can we please have a blur function for teams on Mac devices - especially now schools are requesting it for children attempting to 'home learn' whilst COVID-19 restrictions are in place in England. I thought this may be due to the iMac being a few years older than the MacBook, however neither have this facility!

The background blur on iMac was enabled, but it was gone on the next day. Even though it was there, it won't allow me to use any other filters - only blur. The Microsoft Team for iMac - maybe on other computers too - has the messed up participant profile icons. Please fix those bugs and give us iMac-ers the background filter feature back.
The background blur don't work with my mac book pro 13" mid-2012 on Mac Os Sierra 10.12.6 and Mac Os Catalina 10.15.7. Please provide it.
It worked for a while last mouth but no longer works at all.
my microsoft teams doesn't have background option while my teams is the latest versin and i use macbook pro high sierra 10.13 does anybody can help with this issue
on a MAC with AVX1.0 does allow background blur with the keyboard shortcut Command-Shift-P. However, the background folder with picture files for custom background is disabled and no background picture is allowed to be selected. I have checked the image storage location and there are files there, but they do not show up in the list. Blur works at least.
New as of 2020 September, iMac 27 2020 running OSCatalina, 16GBRAM, MSTeams is working but background blur does not work. AMD Radeon Pro 5500 XT 8 GB graphics card, 3.8 GHz Intel i7 processor. MS Teams version 1.3.00.18164.
IOS 10.15.5 is on my machine. The blur feature was working as other users have reported, but it is no longer working. I have Microsoft Teams Version 1.3.00.9271. What is the solution to restore the feature?
You have to have an Intel CPU with AVX2 to access the background effects.

Background blur is not working for me on 2011 iMac with High Sierra and Teams v1.3.00.8663, but is working on new MBP 16 with Catalina and Teams v1.3.00.4460. Tried to download newer version of Teams on iMac, but can't seem to find it.

I've found that this feature works only on computers equipped with Advanced Vector Extension 2 (AVX2) graphics.

I dont't have the background blur option for my team 1.3.00.8663 on my macOS High Sierra 10.13.6.
I've try to update Team and it says I'm running with the latest version.
Does this feature is platform dependent ?
My macbook pro Os is 10.12.6. I have the latest MS teams but do not see the blur function. Why?
I don't have the option to blur my background in teams, Please add this feature back. Thanks
