Facebook rolls out dark mode for Messenger: Here is how to get it
The dark mode is still under beta tests and the feature is being rolled out to only select users for now.
To make its chat platform more interactive, Facebook has rolled out various features in recent months. After rolling out the 'unsend message' feature for Messenger, with the help of which a user can delete a sent message within 10 minutes, Facebook is now rolling out much-awaited dark mode for its chat platform.
The dark mode is still under beta tests and the feature is being rolled out to only select users for now. The feature may not be available to every user yet. "Messenger’s dark mode provides lower brightness while maintaining contrast and vibrancy. Dark mode cuts down the glare from your phone for use in low light situations, so you can use the Messenger features you love no matter when or where you are," a Facebook blog stated.
Dark mode is currently accessible to all Messenger beta users across the world on the latest versions of iOS and Android by sending the crescent moon emoji, and will be fully rolled out in settings in the coming weeks, it said.
"Dark mode is a sleek new look that goes easy on the eyes by switching the background from white to black," the blog post said.
