Microsoft has just started to ship some great enhancements to the new Modern SharePoint Page experience:
We have more options for the tile region, with Image and Title, Plain, Color Block, Overlap. We can also select to show for instance the Publishing date, and also choose the alignment. So a lot more options to build the pages just how we want, and it's also really easy!
Now we can select a few predefined colors from our Site Team (neutral, soft, strong) as our section backgrounds, bringing the sections more to life.
So enjoy this new features, and if you want to read more about this you can find it on Microsoft's official blog about this enhancements:
We also got the possibility so that page owners now can customize the page thumbnails and description so that we can override the auto selected image and description that is used in search results, highlighted content and SharePoint News. So no more surprises for us anymore :D
