Microsoft Teams is getting a UI upgrade with new dark mode and icons

Microsoft has been working hard on overhauling and unifying the
look of its products across all categories, and it’s now
unveiled a new look for Microsoft Teams. As part of the
Microsoft Teams update, Microsoft is introducing a new range of
icons for various buttons within the desktop.

The left side pane has got new icons, finishes, round corners,
materials and dark mode support. The update has been designed
to give Microsoft Teams a new modern look on a range of
devices, from desktop to tablets to mobiles as well.

Microsoft Teams already comes with a dark mode, which gives
your eyes a welcome break, particularly when you’re browsing
the conversations at night, but there’s a problem: Teams dark
mode is not applied everywhere in the desktop client. For
example, the top menu and left side pane are still dazzling
purple.

The tech giant is now preparing an update that will rectify
that problem by changing the purple colour to match your
preferred theme.

At the moment, Microsoft Teams new look is rolling out to
Windows 10 only and it will arrive on other platforms later
this month.

According to a post on the admin portal, Microsoft wants to
make Teams feel “more modern and lightweight”. In the first
phase of the rollout, Teams is getting these improvements:

  • More rounded corners.
  • Fluent Design.
  • New drop shadows effect.
  • New icons emphasizing rounded corners.
  • New colours and styling.

The rollout is expected to start in mid-February, but users can
join the public preview of Office 365 and try the changes
today. In addition to UI improvements,
Microsoft Teams is also expected to get a new recap feature
and presenter view in February 2021.

By incorporating the Fluent Design system into all apps, pages,
controls, and styles, Microsoft plans to create a consistent
design language.

Microsoft has also confirmed that Fluent Design is a gradual
process and it will continue to evolve in the coming months.
