Microsoft Office picks up dark mode for macOS Mojave

Microsoft has unveiled a new updated headed to its Microsoft Office suite for Mac, delivering a dark mode on macOS Mojave. Designed for the latest version of the desktop OS, the clean interface complements the full system-wide theme implemented by Apple earlier this year.

As detailed by Microsoft Office product manager, Akshay Bakshi the new dark mode is currently rolling out to select testers. Those enrolled in the Office Insider Program Fast ring can now download build 181029, adding the feature to Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.

This follows Microsoft's continued investments in flexibility, doubling down on dark modes for Windows 10. The Windows 10 October 2018 rollout is currently underway, which brings a refreshed File Explorer with an eye-friendly option.

  • Is this also coming to Windows?
  • Already exists on Windows for 2019 I believe. At least it does in Outlook, pretty sure I remember being in word
  • It is on MS Office 2016 and above.
  • yeah Office 365, Office 2013, 2016, and 2019 all have a black theme which is essentially the "dark mode" on Windows devices.
  • But it doesn't look good as the one in Mojave.
