Is it no longer possible to add background images in the headline in teams announcements?
Has this been generally switched off?

here are some information regarding your issue:
Some users have reported that the option to add background images to announcement posts is missing, particularly in new Teams experiences.
it is mentioned that Microsoft might be planning to add a feature called "Designer" to create more powerful banners.
You can use Designer in Microsoft Teams (free) on Windows 11 to create announcement banners for community announcements. This feature allows you to add and customize images for your announcements.

We too have the same issue (24/10/2023). The designer option is not available either.

@SvenJHH - I am having the same issue and use background images daily within my teams channel. When will the option to upload background image be back available for Teams Announcements?

@LeonPavesic, I appreciate your response. However, 1) this sounds very complicated and 2) I am not seeing any "Background image Create with Designer" button in the new Teams. You know the old saying, if it ain't broke... I wish new features didn't come at the expense of old ones simply disappearing... If you could point out where this Designer feature is supposed to be located, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

I assume the Designer features you mentioned are part of the "Try the new Teams" options. That slider is greyed out for us due to 'org policy'. Now I am unable to use a simple branded gradient for my internal release notes. I'm very disheartened.

I'm not sure if my organization will give us access to a "co-pilot license". While it does look interesting, I'm hoping they didn't remove functionality that existed before to replace it with a shinier functionality that will require users to pay more money to access.
