Want to know how you can get access to the dark mode on Facebook’s profile? Follow this article to the end. Facebook has finally come up with the dark mode for the desktops; however, it still needs to be introduced in iOS and Android. The development for the same is under progress.
The dark mode of Facebook is a newly introduced feature that you may access from your profile settings. The feature, which, when triggered, will replace your usual bright display with black and gray shades for both platforms as well as desktops. Even though this is a minimal feature that doesn’t require much discussion, it is an important one for many users.
The dark mode sometimes works as a refreshing alternative to the usual display colors. However, this is not the only case why users are switching to dark mode. The dark mode lets the users efficiently read through the text, appearing in white color. Also, the darker mode is much recommended because it minimizes the on-screen glare. It can be used by people who usually get time to use the application after dark.
The dark mode also helps in reducing battery consumption as it uses less energy than white displays. The dark mode, particularly on a device with an AMOLED screen (where black pixels are entirely turned off), will help save its energy. You will notice that the battery of your mobile device has started lasting longer.
The dark mode’s look can change before it gets released worldwide. It can even change because of the feedback. We are saying this because the company recently did minimal customizations to the dark mode of WhatsApp after its worldwide release. The contrast level got adjusted in the dark mode of WhatsApp, which might be done for other apps, too, in the future. If you want to get access to the dark mode on your desktop and mobile devices, follow the details below.
Facebook Dark Mode for Desktop
In the previous months, Facebook introduced an option of dark mode in the design that it launched for the systems. Even though it took a long duration to introduce this new design for every individual out there, its process was finally completed in October 2020.
If you want to access the dark mode of Facebook, go to the menu from the button present on the top-right and press on the “Display Options,” Then, you can enable or disable the dark mode by using the toggle button.
In case you want the dark mode on the old layout of Facebook, you can do it by using the ‘force’ dark mode of Chrome for Facebook. To enable the dark mode for the old Facebook layout, you need to first be assured that your system is updated to Chrome’s latest version.
Further, type “chrome://flags/#enable-force-dark” in your browser’s address bar. You need to then change the settings for the drop-down box you see as the first option. Further, set the settings to “Enabled” instead of “Default.” As soon as you make these changes, your browser will re-launch, so make sure first to save your work. Once the browser relaunches, every site you visit will appear in a dark theme. To change it, you can go back to the link discussed above and select the option “Default.”
Facebook Dark Mode for Android and iOS
Facebook has started tests to introduce the dark mode to standard Facebook and Facebook Lite applications for iOS and Android. After an extremely long duration, this thing is finally happening. Till then, you need to be patient and try out the dark mode for the Facebook mobile site by using the same link that we have discussed previously but instead change the options ‘Android Chrome UI dark mode’ and ‘Android web contents dark mode’ to ‘Enabled.’ You can now access your Facebook mobile site in dark mode. In case you want to disable both the options, simply return to the link and deactivate both the switches.
However, the Dark mode already exists for Facebook Messenger, and if you want to use it, simply tap on your profile pic and toggle on the ‘Dark mode’ switch.
So, this is all about the Dark mode of Facebook. We hope that this feature will get announced for iOS, Android, and iPadOS very soon in the upcoming future. We are pretty sure that it will arrive within a short span, as the Dark mode has already arrived for both WhatsApp and Instagram and WhatsApp.
