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.

How close are we on this.  Just wrapping up on work for the day in Power BI Desktop.  My eyes are literally burning as if I have stared at the sun all day.  :-)  All other Microsoft applications have a dark theme.  Let's make it happen in Power BI Desktop the service.  This is a top priority for Developers.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

Hello, A dark mode for the power BI app would be greatly appreciated, working long hours making a report with a bright UI is very harmful for our eyes.



Thank you for your work

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

why it does have to wait for Major Update to just release a 'bug' fix for this one? Getting tired of your s, Come On!

Why has this still not been addressed yet? Absolutely ridiculous.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

If anyone is listening, I have a condition called keratoconus which along with photosensitivity - makes reading black text on white backgrounds very difficult for me. Would appreciate and would be grateful for dark UI. Thank you.

Hard to believe that this is still not fixed, after several years.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

This was requested for in 2019, I wonder why it hasn't been addressed to date. I mean all the other MS applications have the option to choose a dark or light colour why not Power BI?
