Details:

Microsoft Teams will soon allow users to create custom backgrounds for their Announcement posts using Microsoft Designer's generative AI. This feature will be available for Channels 2.0 in English-US markets only, with a global release planned for the first half of CY24. The Designer integration can be found at the bottom right corner of the announcement, allowing users to upload their own image or use examples provided by Microsoft. This feature will be enabled by default (except in EDU) and may require additional training/documentation.
Updated March 11, 2024: We are not releasing this feature to GCC, GCC-H and DoD at this time and apologize for any inconvenience. We will communicate via Message center with a new timeline when available.

Non-US tenants may have noticed a temporary loss in the ability to upload an image. For tenants who do not have access to Designer, the ability to upload image will be made available again in early March 2024. In parallel, the team is working to release a globally compliant and localized Designer integration in the first half of CY24.
