Microsoft Office Apps Now Support Dark Mode on macOS Mojave

Microsoft today updated its suite of Office for Mac apps, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, with support for Dark Mode on macOS Mojave and several other new features. The updates are available to both Office 365 subscribers and to users who purchased Office 2019 for Mac as a one-time purchase.

The update also makes it easier to insert a photo from an iPhone or iPad into a PowerPoint slide using Apple's new Continuity Camera feature. This allows users to control-click in a PowerPoint window where you want the photo to appear, quickly take a photo on a nearby iPhone or iPad, and import it into a slide.


Office for Mac apps can be updated via the Microsoft AutoUpdate mechanism by navigating to Help > Check for Updates in each app. For a full list of new features, read the Office for Mac version 16.20 release notes.

(Thanks, Daniel!)

Outlook still shows a white background for the message pane. Kinda defeats the whole purpose.

Because ms needs to sell that software. Google's is free. Priorities.
If you don’t think Google makes money from Chrome, I have a bridge to sell you.

Dark Mode in Mojave is the biggest UI improvement ever in iOS. My eye strain has dropped dramatically since I enabled it. Could never go back. This is great. Now if MS could just make Office run a bit better and not take forever to start up....
