Update the Azure AD and Microsoft 365 login experience with new Company Branding capabilities. You can apply your company’s brand guidance to authentication experiences with pre-defined templates. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93320.
When this will happen
Preview: We will start rolling out to public preview in late October (previously late September) and is expected to complete by late November (previously late October).
Standard Release: We will begin in late February (previously early January) and will be completed by late March (previously late January).
How this will affect your organization
Your custom branding won’t immediately appear when your users go to sites such as, www.office.com. Instead, the user has to sign-in before your customized branding appears. After the user has signed in, the branding may take 15 minutes or longer to appear.
All branding elements are optional and will remain default when unchanged. For example, if you specify a banner logo with no background image, the sign-in page will show your logo with a default background image from the destination site such as Microsoft 365.
Additionally, sign-in page branding doesn’t carry over to personal Microsoft accounts. If your users or business guests sign in using a personal Microsoft account, the sign-in page won’t reflect the branding of your organization.
What you need to do to prepare
Adding custom branding requires you to have either Azure Active Directory Premium 1, Premium 2, or Office 365 (for Office 365 apps) licenses.
