Soon you’ll be able to further customize the Connections experience by applying the themes available in SharePoint to reflect organizational brand colors across desktop, tablet, and mobile.
If you can edit the Connections experience, you have two ways to use this new feature:
Current process: Editors can change the color theme by using the 'Change the look' panel under site settings for their home site. The same color theme will also apply to their Viva Connections experience on Teams desktop, tablet, and mobile.
New process: Editors can go to the top right corner of the Connections desktop app and open the overflow menu. There, they will find a new option called 'Change the look'. This option lets them choose a color theme that will impact both the Connections theme and the home site theme.
Note: This feature will be released along with or after the tenant has received the refreshed landing experience for Viva Connections desktop.
