We’ve got some great news for dark theme lovers out there: Microsoft just announced the initial rollout of Dark Mode on Outlook for iOS, Android, as well as Office.com!
Microsoft starts rolling out Dark Mode on mobile and Outlook.com
Dark Mode was a very popular request, and now it comes to help mobile users view emails, calendars, and other files in dimly lit environments.
It will also help them save battery life. Outlook for Android already auto-switches to Dark Mode when Battery Saver is enabled, and other apps will get the same ability.
More Office apps will get Dark Mode
Although a dark theme for Outlook was already in place, Microsoft is extending its Dark Mode to multiple apps, as Jon Friedman, Head of Microsoft Office Design is highlighting in the company’s announcement:
We’re excited to bring Dark Mode to even more of the Microsoft 365 product suite, starting with additional mobile experiences. Dark Mode comes to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for mobile with the launch of iOS 13, as well as iPad, where we know many people choose to use those apps. That same launch will also bring Dark Mode to SharePoint, OneDrive, Planner, and To-Do on mobile.
What’s your take on the new Dark Mode for mobile and Office.com?
