A new look “theme” for Webex Teams— Windows and Mac
In our upcoming Webex Teams September update, we’re making some changes to our choice of themes in the application. So what’s a Theme? Themes are a collection of defined visual templates which allows you to change the style of your desktop application.
We strive to continuously improve inclusive design of the application and as part of this journey we have updated the Default Theme to a Light Theme.
Our new default theme will make Webex Teams easier to use, improves readability, and will continue to expand our inclusivity to all our users.
For users impacted by these changes, you will see an iteration announcement once you log into the updated application.
The new iteration announcement current default theme users will see:
So, What Can you Expect?
If you’re using the Light Mode Theme today, while there will be no visual change to the user, you’ll notice that this Light Mode theme will automatically become the default theme of the application.
If you’re using the current Default Theme today, your application will transition over to the Light Mode theme and with this you will see the 2nd column getting a fresh update, and a new grey background.
This view will now become the default theme for all users.
For users in the Dark Mode theme or using High Contrast mode today, you’ll see no change to the appearance of the application as these themes will remain unchanged.
Choose Your Theme
The new Themes options available from September.
As always, you’ll still be able to choose from other themes under Settings > Appearance (on Windows) or Preferences > Appearance (on Mac), if you’d like to switch.
Let us know if you have any questions and if interested, try Teams for free today.
