From the past few weeks, it has been rumored that the social media giant Facebook will bring dark mode on its Android app. It has already pushed the dark mode to the early testers. And now, the company has started rolling out the dark mode on its Android app. Several users were able to try it, as specified by our colleagues from the Android Police site.
Facebook on the web already tested the dark mode and is also working on to bring a new UI to the web version of Facebook. For its part, instant messaging Facebook Messenger has been hosting dark mode since April 2019. There was only a need for dark mode on the official application.
Facebook developers had said they were working in dark mode for the application in August 2019, and since then nothing has been seen. According to a report from Android Police, some users are already enjoying the dark mode on their Facebook app. Testimonials are starting to appear in on Twitter and Reddit, which implies a gradual deployment of the functionality.
According to the users who have already got their hands on the dark mode, the mode does not seem quite ready yet. Some areas of the application suddenly change from white to black, so there are still some misfires. It has a dark gray UI instead of a complete dark UI. The blue icons change to white, just like the font. Facebook is probably doing the last user tests before a general deployment of the dark mode.
Facebook users have been eagerly waiting for this dark mode as the Facebook app is declared as one of the highest energy-consuming apps. Now, with the induction of dark mode in the Facebook app, it will consume less power and will also subject to reduced eye strain.
