How To Prank Your Friends On Microsoft Teams

How To Articles

Are you looking to add some fun to your online meetings and trick your friends on Microsoft Teams? You’re in luck because in this article, I will be sharing some playful and innocent pranks that you can pull on your colleagues. Let’s get started!

The Background Swap

One of my all-time favorite pranks is the background swap. Teams allows you to set custom backgrounds in your video meetings, so why not take advantage of this feature to create some laughter?

To begin, choose a funny or embarrassing photo of your friend and save it to your computer. Then, during the meeting, click on the three-dot menu at the bottom of Teams and select “Show background effects.” Choose the “+” icon to add your custom image, select the photo you saved, and voila! Your friend’s background is now hilariously altered.

The Mute Confusion

Another classic prank is to mess with your friends’ audio settings. During a meeting, wait for a moment when they are speaking and pretend like you can’t hear them. Act confused and say things like “I think you’re on mute, we can’t hear you!”

To make it even more convincing, you can secretly use the Teams chat to send them a message saying “Hey, I don’t think your audio is working. Have you tried unmuting?” Watch as they scramble to fix a problem that doesn’t actually exist!

The Typing Ghost

This prank is perfect for those who like to be a little mischievous. When you’re in a meeting with your friends, open up a notepad or any other text editing software. Start typing random messages, making it seem like there’s a ghost typing on your keyboard. This is guaranteed to confuse and amuse your friends!

If you really want to take it up a notch, you can use a remote desktop sharing tool to control their cursor and simulate a haunted computer experience. Just be sure to let them in on the joke before things get too spooky!

The Conclusion

Playing pranks on Microsoft Teams can be a fun way to lighten the mood and bring some laughter to your virtual meetings. However, it’s important to remember to keep the pranks harmless and respectful. Always make sure that everyone involved is comfortable and enjoys the humor.

So go ahead, have some fun, and prank your friends on Microsoft Teams! Just remember, it’s all in good fun, and laughter is the best way to build camaraderie in the virtual world.
