Some of my clients have had a blurred zoom background. It’s definitely not static; the background blur moves as their cameras move around too. Anyone know what this is?!

It actually only showed up with the latest zoom update for me! Promise I’ve been updating since last March haha

It’s called magic. Some boring people call it a standard filter too

Pretty sure it’s an intentional blurr function.

It's a setting (available in Zoom, Teams, etc.). You can blur your background or even add in a picture (I've seen some people use their firm's office as a background). You just have to go somewhere in settings to do this.

Nvm - found it! It’s with the new zoom update

It’s just the blurred option. It follows the focal point of the screen.

Advice on how to encourage more from a team member that does the bare minimum? They often aren’t very responsive online and a simple task will go on for days with little improvement. This is an individual I’m managing from another consulting firm, so the dynamic is different than your typical team.. so I’m not totally sure if it’s even in my wheelhouse to reprimand when it’s warranted. For weeks now I’ve been picking up the slack. My personality is not to be a hard-ass Manager. Help!

I was a stay at home mom for 10 years; had 4 children & helped my husband build a decent non legal business. I started my PI practice at end of 2019. I did great in 2020. Unexpectedly I developed inappropriate feelings for a mentor over zoom. We decided to stop working together and started therapy. I faced my horrible childhood trauma, gained confidence and realized how terrible my marriage is. Husband admits mistreating me & regrets taking advantage but thinks I’m unfair for wanting a divorce.
