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.

Power Bi should be able to pick up system's preferences of the user and set dark mode if the user run Win/Mac OS in dark mode.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

I suggest you to add dark mode to the app for people who like dark mode better than light mode.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

Microsoft Visio and Microsoft OneNote 2016 also use this uniform approach of having the same Office theme (and background). I'm a huge fan of the black theme and no background ...

PowerBI team, thanks for the cool new icon. ;-)

Really would like to see this implemented as most other Microsoft Products manage to incorporate dark theme.

Seems like such a simple fix with so much interest - yet over a year with no update.

All the people who are building things want dark mode. Light mode is fine for users who are only spending a few minutes on a dashboard, but for the people who have to spend hours staring at the screen to build aforementioned dashboard, we want dark mode.

I have light sensitivity and not having dark mode is killing me. Also being color blind, I find contrast to be harder to see in the light mode and themes than dark.

I really really Dark Mode in my life. Starring at white bright screen all day will kill my eyes.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

I'm strongly red-green colour blind such that my colour perception is negatively affected across the entire colour spectrum. And, the existing high contrast options are terrible. Please do a better job of supporting colour blind users.
