Facebook test dark mode for mobile app

June 29, 2020

Facebook may be a little behind the curve when it comes to dark mode - to give users less in your face glare - but they have now confirmed it’s in the testing phase for their mobile apps.

Instagram and WhatsApp both have it already, Twitter has had a version for quite some time, and even Google brought out a dark version for its app earlier this year - so you may wonder what is taking Facebook so long….but, we’re told the option to change the background to black - for those night time feed-scrolling sessions - will be with us very soon.
