Following the launch of a dark mode on several other Microsoft iOS apps, the company’s Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote apps have begun testing the feature before an official rollout in the near future.

The news was announced today on the official Office Insiders Twitter account (via WC) where it was stated that Insiders would have access to the feature first.

Microsoft Office’s product manager, Akshay Bakshi, also confirmed on his Twitter that all public users would gain the dark mode option after an app update next week.

Microsoft has recently added dark mode to its Outlook, To-Do, and OneDrive apps. Many other iOS apps developed by other companies are also getting the option due to system-wide support for dark mode settings being added with the launch of the iOS 13 operating system. The popular Instagram iOS app got its dark mode just a few hours ago.
