If you liked the look of Sebastian's video on the Podcast, but lack the funds to order the camera he was using that let him adjust the aperture for that effect then Microsoft has good news for you.  They are bringing the AI powered background blurring effect they rolled out in Teams to Skype 8, which will be arriving the same time as the desktop version we are used to kicks the bucket.  While the move to UWP has not been well received by many, perhaps this indicates Microsoft will be focusing on improving the single remaining version of Skype.

The Inquirer reminds you why blurring your background can be a good idea, if you had forgotten about this video.

"Said release is Skype version 8, the first to exclusively use the Universal Windows (tiled) standard at the expense of the more feature-rich desktop version, though Microsoft has confirmed that it will be adding more familiar features to the new edition."
