Use the background blur feature on iPhone
Please use the background blur feature on iPhone
We are working on this feature, and look forward to updating the status as we get closer to the release.
Microsoft — please communicate *why* this feature may be missing from the iOS app.
There are news stories about it, Microsoft blog articles, and even the in-app release notes mentions blur.
This is very confusing for your users, many of whom have wasted time trying to figure out on their own where the blur feature was hiding.
If the lack of “blur background” is due to some kind of “opt-in” setting available to administrators, we need to know so that we can request it.
If its absence is due to Microsoft, please update your communications so users know what to wait for.

Hello is there any update concerning this issue?
I can confirm that on my iPhone 7 with Teams App 2.0.10 (and developer preview enabled within the app) background blur is also not available. Any information appreciated.
My iOS Teams version is 2.0.10 but I could not find any button to active this blur background function. The release note said blur background was available since version 2.0.9. Some members noticed that it was working a few weeks ago but now it's gone. Could admin update when this useful function will be available to iOS as stable version?
Hi Alex, do we have any update please? Are we expecting further app release to fix this? Many Thanks.

App update says I should have this feature. Not showing as an option on either my iPad or iPhone. When will this be fixed?
yes I updated my teams app but the option to blur my background still cannot be found.
This still doesn't work - despite the release notes saying you can now "blur your background in calls and meetings." Is everyone else still having this problem?
Really need the BLUR feature added back to the MS Teams meeting for the iOS folks. It works fine for the desktop, but iPhone and iPad not so much.
what gives? What is the expected timeline?

I had this feature on my ipad pro 2018, my kid is using it for school online class, rly need this feature, it was available for a week and now is gone and not able to use it anymore. Can we know why and when this feature is going to be added back in?

I have been using Microsoft team for business meetings. Unfortunately though as I have a iPad I cannot change the background or blur the background this currently only possible via Mac or PC Looking on the Microsoft website it stated that this will be possible but that was March 2020 . We are nearly in the end of April 2020
