Microsoft is planning to introduce a dark mode to its Outlook.com webmail service. Microsoft introduced a temporary dark mode for Halloween last year, but now they are working on a new permanent Outlook dark mode for the past few months. Microsoft unveiled that this new mode will be available soon.
Microsoft’s New Outlook Dark Mode
Microsoft first introduced Outlook nearly six years ago as a replacement for its ageing Hotmail web service, and it has now around 400 million active users. Microsoft has been tweaking its webmail service ever since with updated features, and now a new mode is going to be rolled out in future. Outlook dark mode is one of the most highly requested features for Microsoft’s webmail service, according to listings on their feedback site.
While discussing the new Outlook Dark mode, the Microsoft team unveiled that:
“The sneak preview you saw last year at Halloween was a prototype that required a lot more work to be ready for prime time.”
Microsoft team said that it has redesigned the colors and code “multiple times,” and it’s in the final stretch of introducing the new theme in Outlook.com.
While discussing this new mode in a feedback post, The Outlook team explained that:
“One reason for the delay is our insistence that we deliver the best Dark Mode of any leading email client (you’ll understand when you see it, I guarantee).”
Microsoft’s Outlook Dark Mode is a very interesting mode. Let’s see when this new mode comes out.
