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 unacceptable that a feature as simple as this hasn't been approved. MS has done this in the pas for so many other interfaces, why not Powe BI?

Maybe using ChatGPT to help converting the legacy code of Power BI

It's a standard nowadays! Look at Visual Studio Code. Why not Power BI?

Give us the option to change the software interface color to dark gray. Just like in other microsoft softwares.

Dark Mode for the whole application. The overall white background can be blinding, so being able to switch would be received well I believe.

Just trialling PowerBI as an alternative to qlik and tableau.. can you make a dark mode please, it's 2023. White is very painful for people with sensitive eyes, it's an accessiblity issue

Please implement a dark mode option for the web version of Power BI. A variety of themes in general would be really awesome.
