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.

I wonder if people at Microsoft use this interface extensively. Surely they would notice that the new UI is too bright.... Not to mention now everything's just one white mess, so far the elements were visually distinct.

It's not only that I personally think that light mode is a terrible design decision, it's the fact that the users have less options to choose from. We need the dark mode back ASAP.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

I was so confused when i installed PowerBi on my new machine and it was in a "light" mode. Dark mode was way better. Bring it back guys

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

Sometimes it's hard to understand the background of some decisions.

Dark theme was something already built in the application, used by a lot of users I'm sure, and suddenly, it's gone.

I don't understand a decision that brings trouble and zero benefits... Bring it back, please.

Seriously, who's idea was it to change the dark mode to this horrible colour? I can barely see the different types of visuals. :(
