Outlook’s Much-Awaited Dark Mode for Phones Might Finally Be Coming to the Public

Posted on July 15, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Outlook.com with 9 Comments

Microsoft has been introducing a dark mode for Outlook across all platforms. The Outlook web app has a dark mode, so does the Windows 10 app, and even the classic Office desktop app. The only Outlook apps left to get the dark mode are the Outlook apps for Android and iPhone.

Microsoft teased the new dark mode for Outlook on phones last year, and it might finally be coming to users.

Windows Central got their hands on some official renders for Outlook on Android, showing off the app’s new dark mode. It looks gorgeous, of course, and it will also be arriving for iOS. According to the report, the new dark mode can be easily toggled through the hamburger menu. There’ll also be a dedicated settings section for the dark mode where you can further configure the new dark mode, and enable things like the dark mode to automatically turn on when your battery is low, etc.

This is obviously our first look at Outlook’s dark mode for phones, and it’s nothing surprising at all. Still, the fact that Microsoft has readied official renders for the new mode could suggest that it’s getting ready for public release or beta test soon. And we will let you know once that happens.
