Dark themes are everywhere nowadays, and Microsoft has been slowly adding them to its own lineup of apps and services. And it looks like the next on the list to get the treatment is none other than Outlook.com.
In a post on its Outlook feedback forum (via The Verge), Microsoft confirmed that it is indeed hard at work on a dark mode for Outlook.com, and it should be coming "very soon." However, the company says that it's taking its time to get things right. From Microsoft:
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). The sneak preview you saw last year at Halloween was a prototype that required a lot more work to be ready for prime time. We've redesigned the colors and code multiple times and are proud to enter the final stretch.
As you can imagine, dark mode is one of the most requested features, not only for Outlook.com but across Microsoft's apps and services generally. Darker themes have been gradually rolling out across the company's apps, with To-Do being the most recent to switch off the light. With the promise that Outlook.com is to get a dark mode "very soon," it looks like you may soon be able to check your inbox on the web without burning your eyes in the dark.
