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.

Please revert to dark mode - alternatively, is it possible to have a colour mode to choose optionally.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

Surely somebody on your team should have been taught that white mode is not "modern" as you stated in your update page. It is actually the opposite since more and more studies are being releases showing that white-mode actually destroys your eyes long term.
Absolutely insane that you would release this without an option to switch back to dark mode. My eyes are killing me and I am only 25 with 20/20 vision. Please revert back or add dark-mode in the next update or ASAP. Thank you.

Please reinstate dark grey theme to side menus!

I understand some people tolerate a light mode, but does anyone on earth like it better? I haven't met them, it has made the tool significantly less enjoyable.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

Why is this feature available in some Microsoft applications and not all?? It boggles my mind. Make this feature available across all applications, including Power BI!

With the new bright layout, a dark mode is very important.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

There needs to be an option to select either a light or dark theme for the UI. Being forced to use the light theme is really frustrating.

We like dark mode. Why did you take it away? at least have it an an option.
