Microsoft is rolling out an improved look for Microsoft Teams to public preview users. The improved design is built to feel “more modern and lightweight,” according to Microsoft. Teams users in public preview should soon see an improved dark theme, drop shadows between panels, and icons with Microsoft’s Fluent Design language.
The color and styling changes, including a darker dark theme, are already rolling out to public preview users. The other changes, including the new icons within the app, should start shipping in mid-February.
Here are the specific changes, as outlined by Microsoft:
- Color adjustments to the default and dark themes
- Added drop shadows between panels
- Icons updated with Fluent icon set, emphasizing rounded corners
One of the more noticeable changes is that the dark theme of Microsoft Teams appears to be significantly darker than the previous dark theme.
The changes are enabled by default if you are in the public preview for Microsoft Teams. To check out the changes, you can join the Microsoft Teams public preview program.
