I've been using this handy webpart for ages. It used to be that when you added a user to the 'People' webpart it displayed their name and a nice bright coloured icon (unless a user added their own profile pic to their O365 account - in which case it used that). 

Recently I have noticed that the user account icons are grey. When you add a user - the icons do appear coloured momentarily and then they all switch to grey. It is making the page look awfully dull!
Any chance we could have the colour back!

Talked to MS Support. This change was made in August. They say there is a way to manage this in On Prem but not SPO. How frustrating. Especially when I look at my users profiles in Azure AD they all have nice coloured icons but this is no longer syncing across to SPO.
