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!

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

Please add dark mode as an option at least, removing all together is terrible for users and completly inconsistent with the rest of the Officce 365 suit

Seconded to everything that's been said here. Please reinstate a darker UI option.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

Does anyone really think this arbitrary change to white, in a world were everything is getting a dark option, seems something that would make you appreciate Microsoft more, or less?

This used to be the only Microsoft product I really liked. I would now need to start looking at other options now.

I really wished this would have lasted!!

Before I would have give it a score of 100 out of 10!

Now -1000000000000 out of 10.

That happens when users become second class citizens and are pushed into things into which they were not taken into consideration.

I really had so much high hopes for Microsoft with the new leadership and shift towards unix/linux. Now I am no longer sure about it.

Good example of a quick idea not thought through. Please enable the ability to go dark.

Make dark and light mode an option for the user to decide.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

Por favor voltar ao menu escuro ou colocar opção para alterar modo de cor. O quanto antes cor BRANCA simplesmente horrível.

We really need a dark mode. I'm getting headaches working with the new "light" theme.

The tool is unusable without dark mode

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

a change which impacts the readability of a program, especially when it comes to people working in brightly-lit offices, without warning or testing in Preview mode?

Jeez this is amateur
