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.

All due respect Madm, but you guys should put for vote to change or not the mode!!!

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

This is really incredible. Is it so hard to retain a choice of the theme when users have been accustomed to the dark for years? Is there a top voted idea "switch PBI to light theme with no choice"? Can you please show me the idea? No, you cannot, because it surely did not come from the users. Oh wait! There is "Power BI Desktop UI light / white theme" idea with 1 vote! So this is where it came from. Congratulations for listening to your users with such a subtlety...

We need the option to use dark mode.

Please give us the option to change back to dark mode. My organization controls installations so the uninstall/reinstall work around absolutely does not work for me.

Please give option to use dark mode to reduce eye strain. Thanks!

Add a Dark Mode. Our eyesight depends on it.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

I agree with most of the comments - this new colour scheme is really hard on the eyes.
Why would you make a change like this without the option to switch back or choose the preferred scheme like we can in Visual Studio Tools?
