Microsoft on Wednesday announced that it will soon be bringing Dark Mode to mobile Office 365 apps, starting with Outlook on both Android and iOS.
Outlook, Microsoft’s email and calendar management app, will now feature a “comfortable, crisp, clear, and aesthetically pleasing” dark mode.

According to the company, the mode will reduce eye strain for users and can save battery life too.
“We’re building in capabilities so following the next round of OS releases on iOS and Android, Outlook will automatically switch to Dark Mode depending on the preference you set,” Microsoft said on its website.
This means that users will still have to wait for Android and Apple’s next system updates before they can enjoy the dark mode option.
“In the meantime, Outlook for Android automatically switches to Dark Mode when you choose Battery Saver,” the company noted.
Microsoft, which last year updated Office 365 app icons, intends to roll out Dark Mode across its suite of mobile apps in the future.
“Dark Mode comes to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for mobile with the launch of iOS 13, as well as iPad,” the company explained.
The company added that Dark Mode for the web versions of Outlook, OneDrive and Planner is also in the works.
