MC261353 – Updated June 18, 2021: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

With 3 new color modes for viewing PDFs—day, night, and sepia—users have more control over the appearance of PDFs and how much blue light they see.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 72230.

When this will happen:

Microsoft will begin rolling this out to the Google Play Store in early June and expect to complete rollout by mid-July (previously early July).

How this will affect your organization:

To use the new nighttime reading mode,

  1. Open a PDF in OneDrive for Android, and tap to expand the bottom sheet of the screen.
  2. Tap Appearance.
  3. In the Appearance window, select the colored circle for day, night, or sepia mode.


What you need to do to prepare:

You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
