Handle transparency in Team icons. Currently an image with transparency will display transparent areas black.
This is a no brainer, come on MS Teams!
Come on... this is basic functionality. If only MS used UWP or WIN UI for the Windows version it would have been a given.
Shame MS doesn't support its prime desktop dev tooling for its own platform.
Re targeting other versions you could have used Xamarin.
I can only imagine the man hours it took to get to where we are today (huge improvements on the app over the past year)!
I reckon a solution based on C# / UWP / Xamarin would have been certainly faster / cheaper / more reliable.
This is an standard feature of nearly every app to use custom symbols in.
Having icons adapted to the white interface is okay, but as soon as you switch to the dark mode, things just look really ugly! Having transparency would really improve that a lot.

Still not working as expected at the end of 2019. Had to replace transparent background with white one to reduce the ugly look.
I understand why would one not bother with svg but a png with transparency doesn't sound like something that you have to go out of your way to support.
Wow, this has been an issue since the release?
Hm. Not really a complicated thing to be done, isn't it? Just transparency! Do it. :)
Please. This really needs to be a thing.

lol@this being A Thing
Crazy from a multi-billion dollar company like Microsoft. Does not inspire trust that the development of this app is in good hands.

This needs to be a thing. Not sure how in 2019 _any_ image display system wouldn't handle transparency.

This *definitely* needs to be fixed... Makes for an incredibly jarring user experience as per the attached screenshot.
Would very much like to see this implemented.
I am very surprised this was not supported in the first place. For me a must have. Want the same representation as in share point and other products and documents for groups.
please get it in.
would also love to see this added

The problem is still there! Is it that hard to fix?
These days MS tries to catch-up with too many tools and each of them end-up being half done!
Also amazed to find this... very ******. :-/

I'm not even a real web developer, but even I was using transparent backgrounds in the 90s.
Totally fail to understand why my transparent logo does not work in Teams in the year 2019.
