Announcements are lists of news items, statuses and other short bits of information shared in a group or in a team. Announcements have option to users when to expire after the day of creation.

Announcement is an out of box option to users, to communicate in a group or in a team using SharePoint. Announcements are a short bit of notices or it may be statuses or news items which are shared between two or more peoples. We can set an expiration date for an announcement. When the expiration date is reached, the announcement disappears from the home page automatically. However, it is still available on the Announcements page.
