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!

Literally contract me for a month, I'll implement this?

I wish there was dark mode. It hurts my eyes! Hope you can add this to the roadmap.

Waiting for the class action suite for eye damage.

1990 called - they want their UI back.

I can't imagine why there is no timeline for this.

3 years... seriously. Come on Microsoft! Dark Mode should be a standard across all of your applications by now. This is ridiculous!!!

Unforgivable not to have dark mode in 2022. I have to make so many adjustments to my monitor settings just to be able to use PBI Desktop without hurting my eyes. Please fix it. PLEASE

It's super disappointing this has taken to long and yet has received no traction at all.

Personally I get migraines frequently and use Power BI each day almost all day. The contrast is totally unbearable.

Please get this fixed.

Hi Ideas Power BI Team,


Do you know how to dark Mode @ https://app.powerbi.com/home


I'm new Power BI Administrator in my company and my eye's started burn.
