Finally, Facebook has facilitated Android users with dark mode worldwide. Previously, the social media giant had rolled out dark mode only for website and Facebook Lite app.
The dark mode is the most awaited feature and now the users who run Facebook on their Android smartphones will able to enjoy this feature. A company spokesperson revealed the move to XDA Developers that the feature is being rolled out globally.
“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,” a Facebook spokesperson was quoted as saying.
Firstly the announcement is made by Jane Manchun Wong who used to tweet about the upcoming features of different apps including Facebook. But this time she collaborated with a company spokesperson to make this tweet.
Both Whatsapp and Facebook Messenger already support the dark mode feature. Like Instagram and Messenger Facebook will not get a completely black interface but it would have a grayscale design with white accents for logos and icons.

- Your initial move in order to get the Dark Mode is to update the Facebook app and for it go to Google Play Stor or Apple App store.
- Then head to the settings menu of the Facebook app.
- As you will scroll down, you will observe the Dark Mode option.
- Finally, turn on the toggle to enable dark mode feature.
