Recently Microsoft released the latest Skype test preview version for Windows, Mac and Linux desktop applications. The Skype v8.37.76 update now allows you to blur the background during a video call.

Update introduction:

Whether you want the focus of the call to be on you only, or if you are in a busy place where you don’t need to see the background, blurring the background of the video call will subtly blur everything except you.

You can enable this feature during a video call in two ways by right-clicking on your own video or via the new hover video settings. The camera button’s new hover setting allows you to quickly and easily switch cameras or turn on blurred backgrounds.
