Facebook Dark Mode: Here’s How to Enable the Feature


These days, you will, very rarely find mobile apps that do not come with the Dark Mode option. From WhatsApp to Twitter, Facebook Messanger, Google Chrome, Window 11, YouTube, Google Maps, etc. Some apps (like Netflix) have dark mode by default. Apart from the fact that you get to save a lot of battery power if you look at it from a battery usage perspective, and the fact that it minimizes eye fatigue and improves readability, Dark mode on mobile apps is pleasing to the eye.

After years of waiting, Facebook finally tested Dark Mode with beta users in 2020 and finally rolled out the feature to all Facebook users. Although some Facebook users (on Android) said they experienced glitches with the feature in 2021, where the feature was disabled on their own Facebook app, it has since been resolved and Facebook Dark Mode now works on Android, IOS, and on Desktop.
