Facebook finally started night friendly mode on mobile apps
Who's getting this option is not clear yet but many more people are enjoying the new features as night friendly option.
San Francisco: Facebook has started testing dark mode features in its mobile app beyond a handful of users. The social network has teamed up with code sleuth Jane Manchun Wong to confirm that it’s publicly testing dark mode on Android and iOS. Just who’s getting the option isn’t clear, but MacRumors noted that 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. The Facebook dark mode is a black and shades of the grey interface that replaces the standard white and bright Facebook interface when activated.
You can force 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, Facebook can follow suit.
The feature has been a long time coming. Facebook lets users opt into a dark mode on the desktop back in March, and companion apps like Messenger have had the choice since 2019. It’s not certain why the core Facebook app is getting this feature so much later, but the wait suggests it was determined to tread carefully given the sheer importance of an app likely used by billions of people.
