In Skype, those who weren’t aware can add a virtual background while a video call is in progress. It is possible for users to add custom backgrounds, which means that any picture can be added. However, the folks at Microsoft have made some changes where folks can now add the Bing Image of the Day as a background. Obviously, this is a neat feature since the Bing image of the day is usually a high-resolution photo that looks nothing like anything else. The option to include such images in the background of your video calls is quite a neat feature.
Skype now lets you set Bing Image of the Day as virtual background.
The Head of Product for Skype tweeted the following:
