What are the requirements to have the change your background feature enabled in Microsoft Teams on Android? I have a Samsung Galaxy S9 with Android and I don't see the feature.

As of late March 2021, Microsoft Teams for Android doesn't have "blur background".

However, per MSPowerUser.com - Background blur is coming to Microsoft Teams for Android which has a link in the article to a support forum, such a feature is pending/planned, but with no definitive timeline.


https://www.tomsguide.com/news/galaxy-s21-features-to-enable claims one can change the background on a meeting in MS Teams on Android with a Samsung Galaxy S21:

Galaxy S21 features: Video effects. With the Galaxy S21, Samsung has introduced a new feature for video calls. Simply called Video Call Effects, it lets you add blur, a solid color, or an image to your background while on a chat. In this age of social distancing, Video Call Effects spice up your video calls.
