WhatsApp took its own sweet time to roll out the dark mode feature and the same is also the case with its parent company. On Sunday, Facebook finally released the dark mode for its Android users. The dark theme was already available for a bunch of Android Facebook users, and now, the company has started a broader rollout of it. If you haven’t yet received the dark mode feature, then don’t worry as you will get it in the coming days.
Do make sure you have the latest version of the Facebook app from Google Play Store. Facebook isn’t wasting any time and has already started testing dark mode for iOS users. It is worth noting that the dark mode feature is already available for desktop and Facebook Lite app users, apart from WhatsApp and Instagram users. The dark mode support on iOS is currently not available for everyone, but the company is expected to it start a full rollout soon.
