A recent report claims that Microsoft is trying an AI feature for Windows 11. This new AI feature will give the Microsoft Win11 background more depth of field. Microsoft has introduced a setting dubbed “Depth effects” under the Windows 11 Personalization -> Background option, according to images shared by Windows leaker Albacore. According to the description of the switch, when the user turns on this option, Windows 11 will use AI to add a depth-of-field effect to the current background picture (wallpaper). This means that it will highlight a part and blur the other part. This sounds a bit like when a mobile phone takes a photo portrait mode.
It is unclear if any specific tech is required for this function. We will provide follow-up reports to clarify if there are any particular wallpaper specifications. In a Windows Insider version, a string with the same description and one with the name “Parallax Background” was discovered by Twitter user PhantomOcean3.
