Details:

Microsoft SharePoint Online is introducing new features that allow authors to add curated image or gradient color backgrounds to page sections. The update includes improved focal points, fill mode, overlay, and opacity settings to ensure accessibility. The rollout will begin in mid-March 2024 for Targeted Release and early April 2024 for Worldwide, GCC, GCC High, and DoD. No action is required to prepare for this rollout. SharePoint Page and News authors can access the new features when editing a page or news section. Note that unsupported section backgrounds will be replaced with SharePoint theme colors in email.
We are rolling out new features for Microsoft SharePoint Online that allow SharePoint Page and News authors to add a curated image background or a gradient color background to page sections. (In a future MC post, we will roll out the ability to use your own images as backgrounds.) We’ve improved the focal point and added more settings like fill mode, overlay, and opacity to help authors follow accessibility best practices and ensure that your customized background is easy to read as well as beautiful.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 378647 and Roadmap ID 378648.
