Microsoft has officially confirmed that they will be debuting a 'dark mode' feature for iOS and Android devices who use Outlook and Office.

The news was confirmed through an extremely cinematic trailer which has been released onto the official Microsoft Office 365 YouTube Channel. The trailer gives us some quick looks what the 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."

Dark mode is not only easier on users' eyes, but it also saves battery since pixels that would originally be used in normal mode are now not turned on. At the moment we don't have a solidified release date for the dark modes, but they honestly can't come fast enough!

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
