Here’s something I just discovered that I’ve been trying to do for a long time, so I’m wondering when this ability came about:

For devices that have the ability to change the background, like presence tags or custom device types (if coded), a new function now shows up when “set device image” is tapped. Before the only options were “take a photo” or “choose from gallery”, but now the new added option is “remove image”.

I have no idea when this showed up, but thanks!
