Facebook Testing The Dark Mode On Its Mobile App
Facebook is testing a dark mode for its mobile app with more than just a few people involved. The social network has joined with Jane Manchun Wong to prove that it’s publicly testing dark mode on Android and iOS. While who will get this option isn’t clear, many more people were reporting access to the night-friendly option.
If you have the option, you’ll see a Dark Mode button in the Settings & Privacy section under the Menu tab. From there, you can turn it on or off, or leave it up to your system-level settings. If you have an OS-level dark mode switch on when the sun goes down, Now, Facebook can do the same.
The feature has been revealed a few times before and many have been waiting for this feature. Facebook lets users opt in to a dark mode on the desktop way back in March, and apps like Messenger have had the option since 2019. We don’t know why the core Facebook app is getting this feature so much later, but then it may be that they thought that given the absolute importance of an app which is used by billions of people.
