This is what I found on INDEPENDENT.CO.UK:

Skype is now going to hide probably the most embarrassing thing about video chats: your messy room. The company has introduced a new background blur feature intended to hide away all of those parts of your room that you’d rather people not see, as well as parents whose TV interviews are interrupted by children storming into their study.

The tool uses artificial intelligence to pick out the users’¬†hair, hands, and arms, as well as looking for people, and will keep those visible. Everything else will blend into the background, allowing people to focus on you as you speak.

Turning it on is as simple as clicking the little video button during a chat. From there, the option to “blur my background” will appear, along with a preview of what it might look like.
