Windows Insiders who are testing the latest version of Windows 10 Mobile also get new additions to apps first. One of which was released today for the Outlook Mail and Calendar apps.

Now through the Personalization Settings, you can enable a new dark theme and it looks pretty cool.

To get the update, you will need to be a Windows Insider testing Windows 10 Mobile. If you don’t see the update yet, just go in and check the Store for updates.

Then open the Mail or Calendar app and go to Settings > Personalization and select Dark theme. Notice that the Settings are no longer in the hamburger menu like previous versions. Now you get there by tapping the ellipsis icon in the lower right of the screen.

Here you can also customize the look by matching the accent color to your system.

While several of us Windows Phone enthusiasts have been a bit disappointed about Microsoft is taking so long to get this platform done, once in a while we do get a cool new thing. While this is minor, at least it’s something.

Also, don’t forget that Microsoft is holding its big device event on October 6th where we should see new devices including two new flagship phones, a new Surface Pro, and more.

The event starts at 10 am EDT and you can watch it online or your Xbox One or 360 for a better view on the big screen — if you have the day off anyway.
