Facebook for Android got a redesign earlier this year as the company announced it at its F8 developer conference for this year. However, the one missing feature from that redesign was a dark mode which has become the centre point of app design in 2019. You would be aware that both Android and iOS now have native dark mode support.
It is also seen that most of the Android and iOS applications have received dark mode support as well. However, Facebook’s suite of apps are late to get dark mode support while only Messenger and Instagram currently have dark mode support. Things are going to change, however, as Facebook for Android is starting to get dark mode support.
The one feature that has been requested by millions is finally rolling out and you would now be able to use Facebook in dark without straining your eyes or blinding them with white background. But the thing to note here is that Facebook’s dark mode for Android is not available to everyone. From the posts we have seen of users getting dark mode, we can say that the feature has started rolling out in parts.
It is assumed that the company wants to test this feature with a few users and then go for a wider rollout instead of messing up the feature for everyone at once. This is acceptable since Facebook is a huge company and it does not want to face the wrath of its users if anything goes wrong. As per the report from GizChina, this “dark mode is already accessible among some users, especially in India, Malaysia and Italy”. It is likely that India, Malaysia and Italy are chosen as some of the first regions were dark mode might be tested. So if you are in one of these regions, you are likely to see the dark mode for Facebook on Android.
