Additional Tips for Using Teams for Web Calls

  1. Optimize Your Background: Ensure a professional background during calls. Use the built-in background blur or upload a custom background to minimize distractions.
  2. Use Headphones: Reduce background noise and improve audio quality by using headphones with a built-in microphone. This can make a significant difference in call clarity.
  3. Check Your Lighting: Good lighting is essential for video calls. Ensure your face is well-lit, preferably with natural light or a good quality desk lamp.
  4. Test Your Equipment: Before important calls, test your microphone, camera, and internet connection. This ensures you can address any technical issues beforehand.
  5. Schedule Breaks: Back-to-back meetings can be exhausting. Schedule short breaks between calls to rest and prepare for the next meeting.
  6. Use Teams Features: Take advantage of Teams’ features such as screen sharing, whiteboard, and meeting recording to enhance collaboration and productivity during calls.

By following these tips, you can ensure your Teams web calls are professional, efficient, and free from unnecessary distractions.
