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!

Ah cmon guys it was perfect in a dark mode and you turned it to white =o? Bring back the dark mode or give us an ability to choose!!!

Switch it back to dark (or at least give the option). This is ridiculous - I feel like I'm in a Manfred Mann song.

I’m so upset with the new light UI. Please, please, allow a dark mode option.

Please bring back the original theme or at least enable a dark mode option.

100% Need dark mode, to the likes of Visual studio and other Office apps. Power Bi is built on flexibility and customizable features. So doing this should be a no brainer.

Another vote for this. Fair enough, add a light scheme, taking away the dark one entirely is very silly though.
