Microsoft Teams gets a new and improved dark mode and icons.

On the Microsoft 365 Admin Portal, Microsoft has announced the rollout of an upgraded Dark Mode for Microsoft Teams.

The new dark mode will cover more of the user interface, an upgrade from the old version that still has some purple areas in the top menu and left pane uncovered.

Microsoft is also launching a new range of icons for the customer, designed to give them a more modern look.

The first phase of the roll-out brings with it the following improvements:

  • More rounded corners.
  • Smooth design.
  • New drop shadow effect.
  • New icons with an emphasis on rounded corners.
  • New colours and styling.

The new design is already available to those in the Office 365 Public Preview and will be rolled out to regular users starting in mid-February. It will also launch on Windows 10 and be rolled out to other platforms later.
