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.

Completely agree. Sad if the only soultion is to back to a previous version.

Toggling between light and dark mode is must for any software. Competitors can do it (I'm pointing at you Spotfire), so why not PowerBI? :-)

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

June 2019 update changed everything to "Light Mode" within Power BI desktop. The entire software industry is going "dark". Seems like this is a regression bug?

I would like the ability to get Dark Mode back so that I don't get a headache!
