Skype is all set to introduce a new feature known as background blur on its platform, which might raise the user base.
Satya Nadella led Microsoft introduce “Background blur in Skype” which takes the stress out of turning on your video and puts the focus where it belongs on you.
Background blur in Skype uses artificial intelligence (AI) trained in human form detection to keep you in focus during your call. This technology is also trained to detect your hair, hands, and arms, making a call with background blur just as relaxed and easy as a regular video call.
Skype mentioned on its blog, “We’ve all had those moments: You’re about to video call your parents and your laundry is all over the place, or you’re about to have a meeting with a potential investor and your business plan is on a whiteboard behind you, or you’re being interviewed on live television and your adorable child comes marching into the room. There are plenty of life’s moments that can get in the way of you being the focus in every video call and that’s why we’re introducing background blur in Skype video calls.”
Background blur is available on most desktops and laptops with the latest version of Skype.
