  2. At the top of box that appears, click the arrow next to New conversation > Announcement.

  3. Type a headline, change its background color, or add a background image for the headline area—lots of options!

  4. Type the topic of your announcement in the Add a subhead area, then the body of your message, and select Send Send button .
