Facebook is working on a dark mode for its Android app

There's a good reason for this - they can look extremely clean, unobtrusive, and minimalistic, all the while giving ample room for vibrant colors to shine when and where they're needed.

In a world where apps are constantly getting whiter and brighter, it's no surprise to see more and more people clamoring for dark modes.


Facebook rolled out Dark Mode for its Messenger app back in March this year, and now it's about to expand that to its main app for Android. It has been mentioned that since the Facebook app is not small, it could take the company some time to "refine" the Dark Mode for it.

The next big Android app to get treated to Dark Mode is the Facebook app. As you can see in the screenshot above, the dark mode definitely isn't ready for public consumption just yet, but it's clear that its development is well underway. By waiting, Facebook will be able to learn from the experiences of developers who have been quicker to create dark modes for their apps. The new look is said to be in the works and there's no word as to when this will roll out. "For example, dark text displaying on a dark background, vice versa". Once all the wrinkles has been ironed out, it will be released globally.
