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!

It's not good to use Power BI like this for long periods of time, especially since it sits on my larger monitor for better viewing of the dashboards. A dark mode is really necessary for us all.

What is Microsoft's timeframe to have dark mode made available for Power BI? What date can we expect to have this feature implemented in the latest release of Power BI?

We are waiting since 6/12/2019...

Could you please start working on this or at least provide a real update?

That's enough! Get this added back ASAP. This is a heavyweight tool in the world of data analytics. Hard-core coders, analysts, data engineers, data architects, self-service BI users, all use this App. GET DARK MODE now. Visual Studio Code, Azure Data Studio, Microsoft Azure Data Explorer, Visual Studio 2022/2019/107/etc...


ALL HAVE a DARK MODE. Let's go. It's ridiculous it has taken this long. It hurts my eyes. What a beautiful visualization tool. I am an expert in this tool. I have been using it since 2015.


Stay in the forefront and put the DARK MODE for report analysts and report designers using POWER BI DESKTOP a PRIORITY.


Hopefully I hit some algorithms there to get this moved to a top desire for those who love and use this Microsoft product.

Save the environment and energy costs and use less light :). Its like a nuclear flash in the office every time PBI desktop loads up on the monitors. PowerBI team at Microsoft must be 100% day workers to not notice their retinas being burned away by the whiteness.
