After a long wait, Facebook has started rolling out dark mode for Android users. Facebook had earlier rolled out the dark mode for the website and the Facebook Lite App. The social media giant will now make the feature available to the Facebook app users on Android as well.
The development was first announced by noted tipster Jane Manchun Wong, who tweets about the features of the social media apps but this time her tweet comes in collaboration with Facebook. She also shared a small snippet of how Facebook dark mode will look like once the feature is rolled out. She wrote, “Facebook is publicly testing Dark Mode!You asked it, I chatted with Facebook’s @alexvoica about it, and here’s a video made in collaboration with Facebook!”
Facebook had rolled out dark mode for web users earlier this year. However, it took Facebook rather long to roll out the feature to the Android users. Now that Facebook has started rolling out the feature, here is what you can do to get it
— To get the dark mode, you first need to update your Facebook app on the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
— After updating the app, go to the Settings menu on Facebook
— Scroll down and you will find the dark mode option
— In order to enable it, you will have to turn on the toggle to activate the dark mode feature.
Facebook is yet to announce the feature officially but a spokesperson of the company was quoted as saying, “We know people have been asking for dark mode, and they won’t have to wait much longer. People will start to see the option in their Facebook app settings as we roll it out globally.”
Earlier, Facebook rolled out a new logo for Messenger along with interesting color pallets. “Messenger gets a new look to mark our continued evolution from a simple way to message your Facebook friends, to a place to hang out with your favorite people, on your favorite apps and devices. With over a billion users around the world, our mission is to be a universal way to connect and be closer together. That mission has never been more important as people everywhere look to private online spaces to stay connected,” Stan Chudnovsky, VP of Messenger said in a blog post.
