How can you enable lighting corrections in Microsoft Teams ?

Microsoft Teams has announced several new features to make hybrid meetings easier and better. In this blog I will explain how you can activate the lighting corrections so that you are better in view when there is less light in your room.

This new feature allows teams to correct uneven or poor lighting during a meeting, so that other participants can see speakers better.

How can you activate lighting corrections in Microsoft Teams ?

When starting the meeting, activate the video by pressing the camera at the bottom left.

Then press the cogwheel for technical options.


In the following screenshot, you can see that a new mode is visible in device settings.

Then activate lighting corrections. This adjusts the brightness and overall light to look as good as possible.
