After a long wait, it seems that Facebook dark mode is nearly ready for launch, and a few lucky users have even been able to try it before its begins rolling out globally. So what is it, and why should you be interested?
Facebook dark mode is a new look for the social network that replaces its usual bright, white interface with black and shades of gray for both desktop and mobile. It’s a small change, but an important one for many users.
Facebook App ‘Dark Mode’ Feature
We have provided you with detailed reports in the past, of Facebook rolling out its dark mode feature to other Facebook-related apps, like Messenger having it since March 2019, Instagram since last fall, whatsapp making it official a couple of months back and dark mode on the Facebook desktop version.
Despite all of these, the closest you can get to a Dark mode on actual Facebook currently, is the Facebook Lite.
However, the good news here is that this is going to change soon, meaning Facebook has finally had its work all done and complete for dark mode on its application, at least on Android.
The launch timeline is yet to be revealed but the company has started testing it already.
Another feature Facebook is working on for its Android app is a tracker for local coronavirus cases. An example below shows mock data from Seattle. The tracker shows cases over the course of three weeks and wider county-wide cases over the course of seven days. There’s also data at the top of the page that shows confirmed cases globally.
Facebook is also working on a refreshed UI for the “Time on Facebook” feature. This digital wellbeing-esque feature keeps track of how long a user actively uses the Facebook app on a weekly basis, with options to better use the app’s settings to manage that time.
