Video calling has gone from being something anchored in the past of the 2000s with the first smartphones with a camera for video calls to being a trend. Microsoft Teams is one of many tools, just like Zoom or Blue Jeans, and has seen its popularity skyrocket in the pandemic.
However, it is also true that video calls do not go well. Whether due to the camera, the darkness of the room or other factors, the image is not a true reflection of us. But in the Teams team already have a solution inspired by Instagram filters.
Teams will have beauty filters in the style of Instagram
Microsoft is currently developing a new feature for Microsoft Teams to allow users to customize your appearance as we already do with Instagram. This new feature called Video filters, it will adjust the lighting levels, soften the facial features and adjust some parameters to adjust our appearance.
The upcoming Instagram-inspired video filters feature appears to be an effort to add more user-friendly features to Teams. While many users may find it somewhat unhelpful, it complements other consumer-centric features, such as the ability to establish a virtual background.
Notably Microsoft has not been the pioneer, before them the people of Zoom has added this functionality some time ago (Viewing the results of Instagram). We hope that this function did not mark that you use the Microsoft tool or another. But, very soon you will be able to customize your appearance in Teams video calls.
Finally, a small detail, the characteristic of video filters is currently in the development phase. This means that this feature will still take a while to be available. But we won’t have to wait much longer either, since Microsoft plans to make the feature available to the general public next month.. However, the exact release date is not known at this time.
