Facebook starts rolling out new dark mode features for mobile users

Facebook Tests Dark Mode for Mobile

Since Facebook rolled out the dark theme for its Messenger previous year, it was being speculated that the company will roll out dark mode for its mobile app. On desktop, users can enable and disable it from a toggle switch in the Settings drop-down menu.

The report also quoted a Facebook spokesperson confirming that Facebook is indeed rolling out the Dark Mode for its mobile application but only for "a small percentage of users globally right now".

Exactly when the Facebook mobile app will update in full with dark mode in tact, however, doesn't yet have an official date stamped on it. The feature has been available for desktop users since last month. Some users posted screenshots of Facebook Dark Mode on Twitter, which appears as an option in the Facebook app settings. After all, it is the only app in the company's umbrella, which includes WhatsApp and Instagram, to not have Dark Mode. The major highlight of the new design was the support for dark mode.


It lowers screen glare, which minimises flickering and blue light, thereby reducing eye strain, particularly when using devices at night or in low-lit locations.

Therefore, the darker the display, the lower the required power and the less battery power will be consumed.

This is because individual pixels in these panels can be turned off when certain parts of an image are black.
