If you have been using the Microsoft Outlook email app on your Android devices, longing for dark mode to be added, the wait is finally over. It’s now possible to enable dark mode for Outlook on your Android device.
Over the last few years, Microsoft has spent a lot of time and money streamlining and improving their core range of apps, programs, clients, and of course operating systems. This has seen Windows 10 get major biannual updates that have refined the way we interact with the operating system and linked devices. Although these updates generally only contain a couple of big, noticeable features, it’s the small tweaks that make most of the difference. A personal favourite of mine being dark mode for Settings and more recently File Explorer.
What’s even better about this focus is that Microsoft has also been working hard on their mobile apps, including Outlook, which has finally been given a fully working dark mode that complements the Windows 10 theme. So if you really want to enable dark mode in Outlook on your Android device, but haven’t figured out where to do it, follow along as we guide you through the process. Just be aware that the feature is slowly rolling out globally, so it may be a few days or weeks before you see the option appear in the menus.
