There should be default background setting for video conferencing.
Default setting of background in profile for video conferencing.
When Zoom offers this, it's strange that such a commonsense feature isn't offered here. If one of my customers calls me on Teams, I need to answer them as quickly as possible, not fumble around for my background for *just that call*. Allow me to have a background set by default.
It would be great if administrators could push out new updates to a corporate default background as they wish.
If I join as a guest to someone else's call, I can't change my background. This is desperately needed!

Please allow for the possibility to set a default background at the Teams owner level (i.e. conference room background), so that all participants have the same background.
Another idea with over 8000 votes called "Default option for Backgrounds" had supposedly been "implemented" by an admin, but it's not......DEFAULT means it's the DEFAULT background, not you having to manually select blur or whatever background EACH time.

Yes..absolutely. , when I video call directly it goes to camera vs background, I could use audio first, customize then open video but its a pain and should just be a feature.

Please add this feature asap. Office in bedroom and under construction and when joining calls it's a scramble to choose.
It's distracting and disrupting the fluid response to a customer call
