Change Window Color, Add Opacity, and Customize Chat Background and Bubble
It would be really cool if we could change the window color of the MS Teams app. For example, the border of the app is purple. But it would be cool if we could change it to any other color or at least make it dark similar to how we can change Outlook to dark. Also, it would be cool if we could add Opacity to MS Teams app similarly to how you can add and adjust the opacity in the command prompt. Lastly, it would be cool if we could change the background of our chat to any .jpg picture I have and be able to change the chat background picture for each contact I have, or atleast one background for all our chats. Also, it would be cool to change the chat bubble color as well.
Color customization for pane backgrounds and fonts would enhance accessibility for people with visual challenges and learning challenges like ADD and Dyslexia.

The ability to change the colour of the announcement posts background would really help learners who have dyslexia. Please add this feature.
It would be especially helpful since I'm always afraid I'll put confidential info in the wrong chat (because they all look the same and I'm very busy) and it's really messing with my OCD.

We need this feature ASAP. It would help not to divulge information on the wrong chat window

We need this. Just posted in the wrong team. . . Need to be able to change the coloring or SOMETHING.

And it's not just personalizing so you can easily identify who you're talking to, I need the "Start a new conversation" bar on the bottom to be a different color. 95% of my employees can reply to a post but a handful keep starting new conversations and instead of having to give them constant reminders of how this works, if it was just a different color it would cease to be an issue.
Definitely need to be able to customize chat background colors. I have come close to saying the wrong thing in a group chat because it appeared I was talking to one individual. Of course, now I quadruple check who I'm talking to, but if I could assign a background color to certain chats then I'd know who I was talking to more easily.
Absolutely. There's a use case for this in workplaces. You want to differentiate people and their context by using visual cues. In real life, when you talk to different people they look different.
I would like to see the same in Teams, it's very important so I don't think I'm chatting with Sue but instead I send a message to Steve.
