New dark Office Theme
Would be nice to see a new dark Office theme with colour accents like the colourful theme has. Also, having separate theme settings for the different Office products would be nice since I don't necessarily want dark mode on Word but really like it on Outlook.

I'm all for it! The true dark mode (incl. dark reading pane) is something I'm missing in Olk for years!!!
I think we all basically want the ability to edit the colorful theme options / application colors - independently of the"Dark Grey" or the other theme options... seems to be a 'theme' of this Outlook UI suggestion..

Please could you give users an option to vary the Office 365 theme in line with the Windows light/dark themes (e.g. Colourful/White to correspond to Light and Grey/Black to correspond to Dark).
Some icons and elements of the GI are still using the color palette of the Colorful Theme. That's not coherent with a premium UX. This applies not just for Outlook but for the whole Office Suite.

The dark mode is a great idea, especially in office, but needs one major change. It isn't a true dark mode. The content (email body, excel spreadsheet, etc... is still bright white) should have an option to be dark too. (it should be dark by default if you turn dark mode on). Isn't the whole point aside from looking cool to make looking at a computer easier on your eyes? Apple has done it with their email app. certain colors might not show up as clearly, but the majority of fonts are black on a white background. Just invert it.

It is already in the subscription version if that is what you are running. Go to options >general>personalize your copy of Microsoft Office>Office Themen then chose black
Keep title bar colors in black/dark theme.
I really want to use the black theme as I'm all about dark-mode, but I don't want to give up being able to easily and quickly distinguish the different apps via their colored title bars on the top (blue = outlook, purple = OneNote, etc.).
So I'd like to suggest dark-mode theme for the content (Black/Dark Gray) but keeping the colors from the "Colorful" theme on the top.
