According to the guide meeting backgrounds/blurring are not supported. Furthermore, they option to use them is not even available in the integration from testing. It's marked as a Microsoft limitation. is there any roadmap to support this? 


We can share more details under NDA. 

This is the #1 request from customers ?

If Teams is optimized, this feature is not supported. If you run Teams unoptimized, then it is available but your VDA CPU will spike to the roof.

My guess is that when Teams 2.0 will be released, the VDI/AVD/Citrix/RDS version will have the same features as the "local" version, as Teams 2.0 have been rewritten, and its not using Electron any longer.


No. Teams 2.0 is refactoring the UI to React, but when optimized, the media engine is still based on WebRTC which is at par with the Teams feature-set in BROWSERS.

BG blurring and BG effects work now.

blurring always works.

Only pre-defined BG effects available - endpoint need internet access (presumably to load the BG pictures from somewhere).

It is still possible to save own picture to the endpoint and configure with registry keys (as introduced with 2206)  in this case user has no way to change/remove the picture:

Name: VideoBackgroundEffect
Value: 0 (disabled), 1 (enabled), 2 (background image replacement, which requires the VideoBackgroundImage key to be present as well)

The following key is required only if you want to replace the background image and not for blurring:
Name: VideoBackgroundImage
Type: REG_SZ
Value: my_image_name.jpeg

The file name, for example, my_image_name.jpg (or name you provide for the file) must be placed in the user’s device, Citrix Workspace app install directory, C:\Program Files\(x86)\Citrix\ICA Client.
