Photo Request - Microsoft Teams Background

Now that Microsoft Teams allows you to have not just a blurred background, but a picture as a background (instead of the actual room that you are in), I've been looking for a picture of an empty CW seat, so that I can "feel at home" when on my video conference calls...

I've googled high and low, and even tweeted BA to see if they had anything, but no luck.

So, to the wider FT BA community - does anyone have a picture they wouldn't mind sharing that they think would suit?

As a comparison, this QR seat photo works really well... It looks as if you are sat in the seat whilst on a call!



Thanks in advance...

Will any of BAs high res photos of the Club World Suite work for you?

xPositor , can you use your own background? I thought they'd just added a library of 24 backgrounds (so far).

So you want a photo which points down the aisle towards the back of the aircraft. The photo above this seems one option, but here is the old Club World suite. I guess you could switch seat in the middle of the virtual meeting?

You can upload your own backgrounds to %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads.

I don't know that I have a suitable photo, but thanks for the tip on uploading your own!

Microsoft will add functionality to add your own backgrounds from within the Teams client in the next couple of weeks, but as krabbenkopf points out, you can DIY in the meantime, any images you add in the uploads folder will appear at the bottom of the list of M$ supplied images. This does not work on all clients, Linux, Windows 7, and some with older graphics cards.

Indeed. Just because there is a crisis one should not let standards slip.

From a Q-suite? Good point!
