The feature "Show background effects" seems to not be present in linux.
Please add this feature for the linux client as well.

    While waiting for the feature to show up, you could use a 3rd party software called OBS (Open Broadcast System) which is also available for Linux.
    By that, you can create a scene where you can select different layouts and things to show in scheme.
    Then in Teams, just select OBS Camera as a camera device in settings and you're all done.
    You could also create an animated background in case you have a "green screen" for static one-color background.

    Youtube has plenty of helpful tips of OBS usage.

    As we wait for this feature to be supported in Linux, here is a temporary solution that leverages Tensorflow Bodypix and OpenCV

    I would inform you that the snap version of the unofficial Teams for Linux now supports background effects!
