Is Dark mode for Bing desktop on the roadmap?

Honored Contributor

I really need the dark mode on Bing, i'm sure a lot of people agree with me too. dark mode is very useful feature, lots of apps and websites have a dark mode by now. Bing for mobile has it, only the desktop version is missing it.

is it on the roadmap? if not, why?

and if it's coming, when can we expect that?

thank you

Hi, of course,

 

Dark Mode is a supplemental mode that's used to display mostly dark surfaces on the UI, instead of white. The design reduces the light emitted by device screens while maintaining the minimum color contrast ratios required for readability.

The advantages of Dark Mode are, it enhances visual ergonomics by reducing eye strain, facilitating screens to adjust according to current light conditions and providing comfort of use at night or in dark environments (big reason).

Additionally, it conserves battery power, thereby enabling device usage for longer periods without charging.

 

Thank you!
