Facebook has been teasing dark mode for users for quite some time now - but we got official confirmation from the company as they unveiled in April that they are working on a dark mode for their app on iOS devices first, and will surely get Android involved in on the action as well. It’s important to know that other popular social media apps like Instagram, Whatsapp and Messenger, all of which are owned by Facebook, have had dark mode for a decent amount of time - with the parent company being the only one left out from the pack.
However, dark mode is finally out on Facebook right now, but not for every user globally. Facebook has released the dark mode for their iOS apps to select users around the world to test and provide feedback about any specific bugs they might face when using the new feature. This is a strategy implemented by most companies who look to test their new features and updates first by introducing it to a select users in chosen countries where mobile usage is high, and then getting valuable feedback from those users before releasing the update globally.
Dark mode on Facebook won’t be completely back like it’s seen on Instagram; rather, it’s going to be a gray coloured shade with white tints for the logo and other text.
We do not have any information about when the dark mode will be made available for the common user across the world, but we do know that it won’t take more than a few months to be released for every Facebook user there is.
