New Desktop app update installed an almost white user interface. There is zero contrast which is not good for the eyes. I see where some people have requested a light interface so incorporate an option to select either light or dark theme like in the Office apps.

This request is on our roadmap, but we don't have timelines to share yet. We'll update this idea when there are more details to share. Thank you!

Nice timing 2019 June update. ^^
Now while really to need Dark/mode.
The next I look forward to a revival in the update.

Completely inconsistent with other Microsoft Products. Personally stumped you can roll out changes like this to be "more modern" when dark mode is more appealing, and certainly more modern.

I appreciate adding a new color but how difficult was it to have a toggle to switch it back and forth?!

They really need dark mode now after the 2019 June update. The menus are to bright now!! I know they said its coming I hope next month at the latest.

Now that the mode completely switched to white arbitrarily, we really need this for Desktop.

Enable a dark/black/gray theme for the various versions of BI; to enable ease of use.
