Outlook Mail and Calendar nabs dark theme, new personalization options in Windows 10 Mobile

Outlook Mail and Calendar has gotten a pretty significant update on Windows 10 Mobile this afternoon. Changes included are a new dark theme — hooray! — along with some notable changes to the menus and a number of new personalization features. The build goes from 17.6216.42272 to 17.6221.42282 suggesting there should be a few fixes in this release.

Onto the big change first: a new dark mode is here, which always tends to be a highly requested feature among fans. As you can see in the image above, the theme looks pretty darn slick, and should cut down on eyestrain if you're checking your email in the dark.

Also included in this massive update are a couple of changes to the Settings menu, along with some new personalization options. For starters, settings are no longer contained in a hamburger menu, having been moved to an ellipses menu instead. Inside, you'll find a new "Personalization" section with options to switch between dark or light themes, along with the ability to customize things by matching the accent color to your system.

Of course, these new options are also included in Calendar, which you can see in the screenshots below. Strangely, however, it appears that the shortcut to get to Calendar from Mail has been removed with this update.

This update clocks in at version 17.6216.42272, bumping up from version 17.6208.42002, so be on the lookout for that. Also worth noting is that Microsoft Messaging has also scored an update, but there's nothing notable included in this go-around. For version numbers there, we're looking at a move from 12707 to 12713.

We'll have a quick video tour up on the changes later, but for now you can go ahead and grab the updates from the links below.
