by Mia Watson Mia Watson

Facebook has always been one of the most popular and used social networking platforms among its users. It has over more than 2 billion monthly active users across the world. Facebook offers the feature of Dark Mode for its chat application of Facebook Messenger.

It is not only Facebook, but several other social platforms have also launched this feature earlier. The reason for the popularity of Dark Mode is quite simple. It enables its users to enjoy their favourite application in the dim mode at night, and it makes your eyes suffer less strain. Because we know how much time we spend on the screens that cause much stress on our eyes and make us suffer. This feature has provided a great new look to the Facebook application by replacing its usual bright, white interface with the shades of dark grey and black interface. It’s a small but crucial change considering your wellbeing.

Wanna know more about this feature? Don’t know how to enable this feature? Want to know on which platforms this feature is available? Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. Here, you will get the answers to all your queries regarding this new feature of Facebook. This article will let you know more about this feature and will tell you how to enable it on the available devices. Go through the full report to have a bright and complete description of the feature.

What is Facebook Dark Mode

The users of Facebook have been waiting for a long time for Facebook to launch this feature of Dark Mode. And now our wait is over. However, the company has partially jumped to this option of Dark Mode, providing the users to enjoy this full feature on the Facebook Messenger chat application. But it will soon be available on the platform of Facebook official application also for both the Android and iOS users, including the desktop and Mac users. For now, this feature is available only for the few Facebook Lite Android beta users. It’s a new and excellent way of browsing through your newsfeed. This will provide its users with a more comfortable and exciting experience. Enabling this feature of Facebook has its own benefits. It not only causes less strain to your eyes, but it will also work as a booster for your smartphone’s battery. As you know how much battery power these applications consume. And Google has also stated the fact that coloured pixels have a direct effect on the battery life of the smartphone. Whereas, on the other hand, dark-coloured pixels have a much less impact on the power of the smartphone. It is a great way to save your smartphone’s battery. Now let’s see on what platforms this Facebook feature of the Dark Mode is available.

How to Enable Facebook Messenger’s Dark Mode Feature on Android, iOS Devices, and Desktops

This has been the most requested feature of Facebook. And it is finally available on the platform of Facebook’s Messenger application for the users of Android and iOS devices. However, it has not officially arrived on the platform of the official Facebook application. As mentioned earlier, it was available only to a few users of Android devices. And the users have experienced random interchangeability of Facebook’s interface from dark mode to bright mode. But, for sure, it will soon be available on the Facebook application also. To explore the Facebook Messenger application on your device in the Dark Mode, follow the steps given below: here’s how to turn on this feature:

  • Tap on the Facebook Messenger application to open it on your device.
  • Select any of the conversations with whom you want to interact from your chat list.
  • In the chat box, type any smiley emoji.
  • Then, go to the emoji section, and see if you can find the crescent moon emoji.
  • Once you find it, tap on it to send it to your friend.
  • After you send that emoji, now you can see an animation of the crescent moon emoji, like dropping rain over you chat. And when the animation is over, you will notice a notification on your screen with the text stating that “you find a Dark Mode” at the top of your screen.
  •  Tap on the text notification, and you will be directed to the settings page asking you to turn on or turn off this option. And you can choose the option as you want.

Now, you can explore the fun and excitement of this great feature of Facebook Messenger. In case, if you don’t see the emoji of the crescent moon, then repeat the process, and make sure that you are on the updated version of the application.

 But still, if you are curious to check out this fantastic feature on your phone or tablet, then you can have a glimpse of it using the Google Chrome browser. You got to follow the steps mentioned below for the proceedings:

  •  To get started, open the Google Chrome browser and type “chrome://flags/#enable-force-dark in the address bar. Change the flags and enable the options of “Android web contents dark mode’ and ‘Android Chrome UI dark mode”.
  • Now open the Facebook application on the browser and log into your account.
  • After logging into the account, tap on your profile and then tap on the “Dark Mode” option to switch it on.

This way, you can at least have an idea about how the application will run in the dark mode. For exploring Facebook’s dark mode using your desktop, you need to follow the same steps described above. Before proceeding, make sure you are on the updated version of Google Chrome. Exploring this feature using chrome might not give you the exact experience of Facebook’s Dark Mode, but it is not too far from that.
