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 add dark mode to all products, this light mode is killing our eyes and wasting energy....

Dark Mode for Power BI would be a great setting to have.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

no update since July 2020, when is this coming? it was actually a feature before, why can't you just put it back in, and save the eyes of thousands of people?

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

Just updated to the 12/2020 version from the 02/2019 version. Am in the process of following along with a paid course on Power BI. Noticed the instructor was using a dark mode, which is not available in the latest release. It's one thing to darken the brightness setting, but it's another to have proper contrast to something users will be staring at the better part or the entirety of their working day. Please enable this feature as soon as possible. It's the little things that make a difference and this change will help this community considerably.

Thank you.

It's interesting and I don't understand why MS continues to release products that don't comply with their own standards related to "User's Ability" settings.

Any update on this? Seems silly for this to be known and ignored for so long.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

Its a shame that this facility was not prioritized. Everybody knows that these options are available in almost every S/W. People request this because they want this, better to get this done ASAP.

Good morning,
It would be good to have the dark mode option for Power BI Desktop y black or blue colours, including cells background.

Thank you

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

Dark mode is so common amongst analysts, programmers and viewers of reports, that I think this should absolutely be an option for both Power BI Desktop and Power BI Services. Editing or viewing reports late a night with bright white lights is not particularly enjoyable.
Thanks.

Dark Mode for Power BI will be very amazing to work.
