Facebook is working on a dark mode for its Android app

Till then, use the bright white and blue Facebook. Wong found code indicating that Facebook has started implementing a full-blown dark mode on its Android app, though the implementation is very rough and in the early stages from the looks of things. And since the mode is the highlight of this year's Android Q and iOS 13 OS versions, other apps and services are trying to push this new look more than ever. Heck, we're surprised it's taken them this long, considering that the feature was promised about a year ago.

You might be able to go dark in Facebook's main Android app in the near future. Looking at these screengrabs, we can safely say it might be a while before Facebook rolls out the dark mode officially. Proof of the existence of Dark Mode was discovered by researcher Jane Manchun Wong (via Android Police) who has previously been reliable in leaking upcoming features in the Facebook and Messenger apps. As you can see in the screenshot above, the dark mode definitely isn't ready for public consumption just yet, but it's clear that its development is well underway. "For example, dark text displaying on a dark background, and vice versa", she added. Once all the wrinkles has been ironed out, it will be released globally.
