  1. Load picture as background instead of blur background in Teams video chat

    How about loading a picture as a defined background instead of just blur the background during a Teams video chat?

    So, for example, I could load an all black picture as the default background to keep the focus on me.

    We are happy to announce that pre-selected images for background settings on desktop is rolling out to the public ring this week. We are continuing work to support user-initiated custom background images as well – stay tuned!

  2. Audio and Video call on every browser

    Now just Edge support audio and video calls. Making Teams work on all main browsers (IE, Chrome, Safari, Firefox) should be a priority . I need Teams to work with all my customers and I can't force them to install software on their machines.

  3. Join a meeting without going through the browser

    Notify Teams meeting invitation emails in Outlook.
    Click on the meeting URL in the invitation email.
    At this time, the browser starts and opens the desktop client.
    Operation via this browser is inconvenient.
    I want to join the meeting with a desktop client without going through the browser.

    We’re pleased to announce that all meeting join entry points have been addressed in Outlook for Windows and Mac.
    - For customers keeping current on the monthly release channel, this update has been released.
    - Customers keeping current on the semi-annual release channel for Outlook will get this this Summer, with a gradual roll out scheduled to begin in mid-July.

  4. Ability to create and distrubute custom sticker packs

    Many modern messengers (like Telegram) allow users to create and distribute custom sticker packs.
    I wish similar functionality would be available in Teams.
