The boxes can be used to enter individual RGBA values. As of now, the feature will be introduced to Rapid Release domains. Whereas Scheduled Release domains will receive the feature from February 15 onwards.

In addition to this, the company has introduced some updates for Classroom. The new update allows the teachers and students to comment on threads. They will be sent via an email notification directly within the email app. This new update will be time-saving since it reduces the time to respond.  The new update has started rolling out.
