Soft focus and Adjust brightness in Teams video meetings

Soft focus and Adjust brightness are video filters in Teams video meetings. Users will soon be able to access and apply both settings, before and during meetings.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 65944

Note: Soft focus is not available for EDU tenants.

When this will happen:

We will begin rolling out in early April and expect the rollout to be completed by mid-April.

How this will affect your organization:

Soft focus applies a smoothing effect to appearance, and Adjust brightness enhances the video quality when lighting is poor.

Users in your organization will see these 2 filters in “Device Settings” panel in meeting and “Settings”->”Devices”->”Camera” panel.

Note: This feature is turned-off by default.
