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!

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.

Can we have a dark mode option for the UI?

I can't find a way to set the actual application to dark mode / high contrast. A workaround is to set Windows 10 to dark mode, but sometimes this is inefficient.
