Does Microsoft offer stock SVG images that could be used in Teams apps?

 

If not, is it ok to reuse the default ones displayed in Microsoft Teams? Here are some examples I came across:

Hi @Christophe Humbert

AFAIK there isn't a cache for stock SVG images specifically for Teams

I would recommend reading here

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/legal/intellectualproperty/permissions/default

From looking at the site it is probably recommended not to use those images for your own app, especially if you intend to monetize that app. Whilst I am not in the legal profession I would recommend looking at the FAQ on copyright in the link above - I don't think using these images would qualify as fair use.

Microsoft does supply a large amount of stock images in tenants via SharePoint. See here

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/add-a-picture-or-image-file-to-a-sharepoint-page-4a9b0e98...

There may be ones there you can use. There are also large Teams related commons on places such as Shutterstock. You can even filter Bing to search for images under the creative commons

Hope that helps to answer your questions

Best, Chris

@Christopher Hoard Thanks for the reply!

 

I am aware of the image search in SharePoint, but I was hoping to get access to images in SVG format to match the look of Teams. In a way, the Web equivalent of the clipart Microsoft is offering to PowerPoint users.

Hi @Christophe HumbertThis item remains on the backlog in Teams UserVoice,

Microsoft will always focus on customer’s feedback and experience, some new features would be added to the services based on customers' feedback in the future, we also recommend you give your new idea in Teams UserVoice here:
