  • Dark Mode is coming to the Facebook Android app

Predominantly white interfaces have been the norm on both mobile and desktop devices for years now. Till then, use the bright white and blue Facebook. That's why developers are increasingly adopting Dark Mode in their apps.

Researcher Jane Manchun Wong, who frequently combs through code in search of new features, did some digging into the Android app, and discovered that Facebook was working on a new, darker look.

Facebook Messenger added its dark mode earlier this year, and we're getting the first signs that the social network's main app will follow suit.

The next big Android app to get treated to Dark Mode is the Facebook app. This is because we are at a very early stage of development.

With Dark Mode being all the rage right now, it's unsurprising to hear of many apps that have either recently received a dark mode for their UI or are at least working on one.

One of the next apps looking to join the dark side is arguably one of the most popular apps in the world - Facebook. The new look is said to be in the works and there's no word as to when this will roll out. For now, only certain parts of the app has been reworked to support the Dark Mode. Once all the wrinkles has been ironed out, it will be released globally.
