Virtual background (including blur) no more available
What a disappointment! Worse, what a stupid decision, in the middle of a health crisis where everyone has to work at home in sometimes not ideal conditions, to remove such an important feature and not even leave an option to the customer. It is really a total lack of consideration (see : https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/908686-bug-reports/suggestions/40115269-blur-option-disappeared).
I'm using Teams (1.3.00.28778) on a MacBook Pro Retina mid-2012 with macOS 10.14.6 and Teams is the only application I'm using that can't offer me this functionality. Even Skype (from Microsoft!) offers it and works perfectly with this configuration, not to mention Zoom or Google Meet (in a browser!), or whatever...
Unfortunately for me, my company has just deployed Teams and I find myself forced to use it on a daily basis.
It's a very bad user experience and the lack of consideration from Microsoft on the many feedback about this issue in this complicated period gives a very poor image of Microsoft and shows where the company's priorities are.
Can we only hope that they will reintroduce this feature on all machines for which it worked perfectly before (AVX2 was not mandatory)?
