Microsoft Teams - Diversity & Inclusion - Icons

Steven Pyrah 1 Reputation point

As part of a recent meeting regarding Diversity & Inclusion in the workplace the topic of skin tone for icons was discussed, such as 'raise hand' for example, it was noted that only one skin tone option was available.

Is there anything on the roadmap that will allow an end user to select the type of skin tone they wish to use for their icons as part of their interactions with others in Teams meetings?

    Hi @JimmyYang-MSFT

    Yes that's correct - the topic of skin tone was discussed in the meeting and how other platforms cater towards the selection of different skin tones for the icons like, raise hand and thumb up etc

    Many Thanks
