I would like to know a way to change the background color of the section page in the beamer metropolis theme.

I tried something like this:


but it didn't work. Any ideas?


  • Please do not regard this as a criticism but your chances of getting an answer will, according to my experience, increase quite a bit if you promote your code fragment to a small document that starts with \documentclass and ends with \end{document} since then others won't have to do that for you. – user121799 Apr 30 at 0:04

It is possible to do much damage to the aesthetic styles by changing colours on each frame so you need to avoid glaring contrasts like whot I have done.

I will simply point you a snippet producing the above frames generated by adding after the default title page

\setbeamercolor{background canvas}{bg=cyan!50!white}
\setbeamercolor{background canvas}{bg=yellow!50!white}
\setbeamercolor{section title}{fg=white,bg=red!50!black}
