Change the colour of Teams, the default purple is deterring everyone from even trying it, and refusing to move from Slack
Basically anything but purple or variant of it
Personally i like green, but variant of blue will also do
Thank you for your feedback. The feature team is reviewing this ask. We will share an update as soon as one is available.
The Green MS Teams icon above is much more inviting. I also was reluctant to start using MS Teams because of the dated uninviting purple color. Please add a fix to allow your users the choice to customize the theme & colors.
Please give us the ability to update the colors. Dark theme is nice, but we need customization. Slack is winning on this front.
The purple is horrible. Please do basics right.
It would be trivial to add color schemes at the very least. The Purple used for the client is nauseating. Office has Blue, Dark, etc, for the love of all that is holy, please add this to teams. And don't leave out the Mac client with that either.

Three of the men in my team have been assigned pink and are up in arms. Please let us change :)
Hey MS, any comments on when we will be able to customize the color schemes for Teams?

The current inflexibility in colour, style and pop out chat makes this feel like we have regressed a decade in application development and just feels clunky.
I only found this page because I was searching for a way to change this. I also can't stand this color for whatever reason.
I continue to use skype and a lot of the reason is UI. I only make calls and chat (although it would be nice to send media during chat) but the UI with that purple color on light or dark theme is very off-putting.
Definitely nauseating. The high contrast is the only option without the purple but that doesn't provide the same colorized status notifications and active status changes. It is not actually contrasting at all, other than being black and yellow, much like my AOL online window back in the windows 93 days...c'mon guys it's the friggin future. If we can't have flying cars, at least allow us to change the color scheme for a corporate communication platform so our eagle eyed supervisor doesn't get nosy because he knows exactly which window is your messaging service. Dear lord.

Today our organization is split between MS Teams and Slack. As an organization we use teams for voice calls and meetings. Our technical teams prefer slack and when I speak to them about moving to teams one of the biggest complaints is the color scheme limitations in teams. In slack they have a a number of customizations they can configure to make things easier to read when you have very large threads or channels with lots of messages that allow you to scan over many messages.
Color is just one of the many changes required to make this application easier for users to transition from slack to teams.

Purple is horrible on light or dark theme. I vote for option to customize color for MS Teams, and specifically calendar.

we need to be able to change theme and color ,We also want option of adding outlook experience in teama
i request more customized themes in high contrast mode. I have a Eye challenge and i had to use high contrast but the current available three themes are not at all good and also hurting my eye condition. Many people are complaining the same. kindly implement that feature ASAP. Thanks a million

An option to use the system notifications style. For win 10, it would be nice as it will match the system config for color. I know win 10 notifications can also have reply boxes to replicate the teams notification reply function.
teams needs serious UI job, its not very clean has too much white space ( purple space ) and i am allergic to Purple.
Microsoft, are you doing anything about this?
There are themes....
White with purple
Grey with Purple
AND SUPER HIGH CONTRAST-WITH PURPLE
I am sensing a theme to the themes...
I want the option to change the colors
