Testers will get access to this dark mode as early as next week. The information comes from a Microsoft Product Manager on Twitter
Microsoft Office 365 for the Mac is getting a dark mode on macOS Mojave. The information comes from Microsoft's own Akshay Bakshi, a Product Manager for Microsoft on Twitter. He tweets, “Look closely at the Pictures icon. Office running on macOS Mojave in Dark Mode.” If you are a part of office insider, you will be able to access this feature as early as next week. As an office insider, users will get previews of the updates coming to MS office, like this upcoming dark mode for Mac. Insiders will also be able to give feedback to Microsoft about the features. It also seems that the dark mode will be limited to Office 365 subscribers.
MacOS Mojave already has a dark mode and the dark mode in MS Office will compliment this if you are one that is using dark mode in Apple’s latest desktop and laptop OS. Once testing of the new features is complete, it will roll out to Office 365 users. There is no official information whether dark mode will make its way to any other versions of Office for Mac as of now.
Microsoft also introduced a dark mode in File Explorer in the October update for Windows 10. You can read more about the October Windows 10 update here.
