Facebook has confirmed to SocialMedia that it’s testing a dark mode in its mobile apps. The feature is only available to a “small percentage” of users worldwide at the moment, according to a spokesperson. You likely won’t see if for a while, then, even though it’s clearly edging toward a wider release.
Facebook has already brought dark mode to a number of apps, including Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp. It’s not certain why the core mobile app is the last in line, but SMT noted that Facebook has a massive number of mobile users. It would make sense for Facebook to be cautious about rolling out dark mode in its main app when any bugs or design issues could affect a large section of its audience.
