Skype is implementing a new dynamic so that users have more options in virtual backgrounds for their video calls.
While you can upload your own images for a custom background, Skype now kicks things up a notch with an impressive collection of photos from Bing.
How to use Bing images as the background of video calls in Skype
It’s been almost two years since Skype has allowed you to use custom backgrounds to give calls a special touch. And of course, it has been great to participate in work or study meetings from home.
But if you are one of those who always want to have new options, then you will be interested in learning about the new Skype proposal. Nothing short of using the “picture of the day” from Bing as the background of your video calls.
So if you want to have a different wallpaper in each meeting, and without having to go all over the web to find a quality photograph, you can use the daily selection of Bing. Yes, those beautiful images that change every day and show environments from different parts of the world.
And to integrate them into your video call It’s very simple. During the call, click on the “More” menu that you will find next to the video button, and select the “Choose background effect” option. Among the options in this section you will find the possibility of selecting the “Bing image of the day” as a personalized background.
Remember that you will not be able to choose the image, since you will see the daily selection of Bing. Once you perform all these steps, you will have a result similar to what you see in the image above. And if you want to know what place is shown in the photograph or what environment it belongs to, you just have to click on the Bing icon that you will find at the top of the screen.
