Handle transparency in Team icons. Currently an image with transparency will display transparent areas black.

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.
First thing I wanted to do when setting up a team, disappointing in 2019 that icons aren't transparent!
Setting up Teams and noticed this annoying issue. Nice to see this hasn't been fixed in a year and a half.

Well... they've always struggled with transparent pngs... But it looks like MS is intentionally messing this up, since the Electron based desktop app and Edge use chromium...

How has this not even been fixed or even acknowledged in a year and a half?
Илья Марголин commented
It clearly shows MS's commitment to the product
Has this been resolved?

Also, when re-uploading non-transparent icons, I have to uninstall and re-install Teams Windows app for the refreshed icons to appear.
Christian Baumgartner commented
I try to bring this up again because I cannot understand why this is not working for a modern software. Please fix to support a transparent background in profile / teams images.

Please do, its very surprising for a product to not support transparent images these days.
Daniel Brice commented
I had a icon that didn't work well at all with a black background - had to fill it in with white, but that looks sub-par on places where the icon is shown with a grey background... transparency support please.
Yea, use of transparent images which Teams convert transparency to black looks pretty bad. Supporting transparency in profile images would be great!
James Robinson commented
Having just spent ages trying to produce a version of our logo with transparency, I then upload it to Teams only for the transparent parts to go black!
