These design changes will include color adjustments, added drop shadows between panels, and rounded corners, among other visual delights.

To experience the new look, select Settings and more Teams more options icon in the top right of Teams and then select Settings > General. In the Theme section, choose Default, Dark, or High contrast.

On the left side of Teams, the apps will also look a little different. Icon updates for Activity, Chat, Teams, Calendar, Files, and Calls are the most noticeable changes. You'll see a new set of icons in Teams without any action needed.
