10 of the best Microsoft Teams Christmas backgrounds to get you in the festive spirit

With Coronavirus restrictions in place for millions of people, our office holiday parties and team Christmas celebrations look a bit different this year. Thankfully, we have software such as Microsoft Teams which allows us to connect with our family, friends and colleagues virtually.

So, during the last working week before the festivities begin, we thought we would share 10 of the best Microsoft Teams Christmas backgrounds to get you in the festive spirit ahead of the big day!

How to add Microsoft Teams virtual backgrounds

To add a custom background, simply save the backgrounds you like to your documents. Then, while you’re setting up your video and audio before joining a meeting, select background effects, click add new and then select a background to upload from your computer.

(Note: once the file has been added, it will appear as a background option on all future Teams meetings.)

Microsoft Teams Together mode

Don’t forget, you can make virtual Christmas get-togethers even more festive by choosing a holiday-themed Together mode scene too! Microsoft has launched a new winter wonderland Together mode scene to add a dash of holiday spirit that’s perfect for hosting a virtual Christmas party.

To set it up, once you are in your Microsoft Teams meeting, select Together mode from the drop-down menu, then click the small pencil in the left-hand corner of the screen to choose a scene (Together mode requires at least five people in your meeting).

All that’s left to say is that from everyone at Lima Networks, we hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year. Follow us on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter to stay up to date with the latest updates from LIMA over the Christmas period.
