You can change the background before or during a call or a meeting.


Virtual backgrounds are not supported on DX 70 or DX 80 devices.

Background options:

  • Background blur

  • Computer screen share as background (if your computer is connected to your Desk device)

  • Standard background images

  • Custom background image, if custom images have been uploaded by your administrator. If your Desk device is registered on personal mode, you can upload your own custom backgrounds. Read how to do it here.


  • The background blur may not cover the background entirely and possible sensitive information may be visible to others in the video meeting.
