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!

Please bring back dark mode or allow people to choose which mode they prefer.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

Seriously this is so ridiculous.

I can't fathom the decisionmaking process behind having an existing dark UI and replacing it with a light one without giving the option to keep the old one. I also can't fathom a world in which a company the size of Microsoft has had from August 14, 2019 until late May 2020 to fix this, and hasn't fixed it. One person working from home could have completely rebuilt the UI in 9 months.

And yet here we are.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

How is this not implemented yet? Why take this away in the first place?
