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.

Both, before joining and during a meeting, you can use filters to subtly adjust lighting levels and smooth out facial features to customize your appearance.

MC352623: Soft focus and Adjust brightness in Teams video meetings

When this will happen

We will begin rolling out in late May (previously early May) and expect the rollout to be completed by late June (previously 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. Please also allow access to *.teams.microsoft.com in order for both of these features to work.
