Microsoft has officially confirmed that dark mode has finally arrived for iOS and Android devices who use Office and Outlook. Users will get the new feature by just updating the apps.


Microsoft made the announcement using a video on the official Microsoft Office 365 YouTube Channel. The video gives us some quick looks what the dark mode will look like on both desktop, iOS and Android devices. According to Microsoft Office’s head of design, Jon Friedman:

A cross-company design collaboration propels us to seamlessly bring Dark Mode to the broader M365 product suite, and today marks the initial rollout of Dark Mode on Outlook for iOS and Android, as well as! The upcoming launch of iOS 13 will then extend this rollout to Word, Excel, OneNote, PowerPoint, SharePoint, OneDrive, Planner, and To-Do on mobile.
