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!

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.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

The zero-contrast flat off-white theming was a major step back in UI design, and it's been years now and STILL no movement on this. How hard can it be - you already had a nice interface with contrast between the workspace and the various toolbars and blades, and then you decided to bleach our eyes with the current abhorrent assault on the senses. Some people may like getting eye strain, but at least give people the option for crying out loud.

How has something so easy and small sat here for so long?

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

Hello PowerBI team. Fantastic product, if it wasn't for the lack of a dark mode. I seriously do not understand why such basic functionality is not a core feature of your software.Could you please, please, pleeeease(!) bump this feature request up on your to-do list and make life much easier and more pleasant for thousands of people?Best regards
