WHAT’S NEW:

Outlook

Dark Mode for Black Theme in Outlook Desktop

With dark mode, users in black theme will now also see the reading pane with a dark background when reading emails, and the compose experience with a dark background when writing emails. There is a sun/moon toggle on the reading pane and in the ribbon in case users want to preview what the message looks like with a light background instead.

Getting Started:

  1. Turn on black theme and dark mode will be on by default.
  2. Use the moon/sun toggle (in the reading pane and in the ribbon) to preview what the message looks like for users not in dark mode

Scenarios to Try

  1. Read emails in dark mode. If you are unable to read something, use the sun toggle in the Reading Pane to switch to a light background.
  2. Compose emails in dark mode. Preview what your message will look like with a light background by using the sun toggle in the ribbon.

If you encounter any emails that don’t render properly, please send them (as an attachment) to the OutlookDarkModeFail,

Get location suggestions

Start typing and Outlook will look for matching locations.

This applies to the Location field when creating Appointments and Meetings.

Getting Started:

  • Create an Appointment or Meeting on an O365 or Outlook.com calendar in Outlook.
  • Click into the Location field and start typing…

Scenarios to Try

When adding a conference room to a meeting, click into Location field, rather than using Room Finder add-in or Address Book. For appointments at a physical place with a public location – like a restaurant, coffee shop, or even your dentist’s office – try finding the exact location using the new picker. This way, you’ll be able to get notified on Outlook Mobile when it’s time to leave.
