Microsoft’s Skype allows you to chat with family members, friends, and coworkers virtually. It’s a popular app, though it misses several features that made Zoom a household name during the Coronavirus pandemic. To ensure that more people use Skype on their phones, Microsoft will allow iPhone and iPad users to blur their background on calls. This feature has been available on desktop for a while.

With the new update, you can hide your messy room while attending a video call with your colleague or client. To use this feature, users need to download the newest version of the Skype app for iOS from the App Store. The feature is titled ‘Enable Background Blur.’

Following are the steps on how to turn on background blurring on Skype:

Step 1: Download the Skype latest version from the App Store on your iPhone or iPad.

Step 2: Fire up the Skype app on your device.

Step 3: Start a video call.

Step 4: Tap the (…) more menu while you are attending a call.

Step 5: Turn on the ‘Blur my background’ option.

During the video call, you need to toggle the “Blur my background” setting, and Skype adjusts your video feed keeping you in focus and blurring the background. Keep this mind that background blur is an optional feature if you don’t want to blur your background. Turn off background blur.

In March, Microsoft revealed that the number of people using the platform increased by 70 percent in a month to 40 million people. Skype-to-Skype calling minutes also jumped 220 percent. Skype faces stiff competition from Zoom and Google Meet. Microsoft acquired Skype for $8.5 billion back in 2011.
