The long-awaited dark mode feature on Facebook is finally out! The new dark mode feature has already been embedded in the web version of the app and plans are underway to include it in the iOS and Android versions of Facebook. However, some Android beta users are already enjoying the dark mode feature on Facebook.
The dark mode is already working on the Android version of Facebook Lite, which is a compressed version of the Android version of Facebook. iOS users will have to wait a little longer before they receive the dark mode update to the Facebook Lite app.
When the dark mode is activated on Facebook, the platform changes from its original blue and white theme to a dark-themed skin. Apart from the sleek design that comes with the dark mode, the feature also reduces glare from the screen, thus allowing users to have a more comfortable experience when using Facebook, especially at night. The dark mode feature also allows your phone’s charge to last longer since black pixels use less energy than white pixels.
To activate the dark mode on Android’s Facebook Lite:
- Download and install the latest version of the app on your phone
- Launch the app and log in with your credentials
- Once logged in, navigate to the settings menu
- Scroll downwards to find the Dark mode option. Tap the toggle button to activate the dark mode.
- Facebook Lite’s interface will automatically turn to dark mode
Dark Mode on Facebook for Android 10 users
The latest Android version (Android 10) supports the dark mode feature. Once activated from the display settings menu, most apps including Facebook, will adapt the dark theme. The dark mode feature in Android 10 is not perfect on the Facebook app but provides a darker interface that is not straining to the eyes.
This is a light version of Facebook that uses less memory, consumes less data and works with weak connections, including 2G networks.
