If, for some reason, you’re not already using Facebook, you should consider creating yourself an account on the platform ASAP. The process is free and it will always be like that, as the staff itself claims. Facebook currently counts a staggering number of 2.7 billion monthly active users, and the social network doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.
After initially bringing the dark mode only for the web version and the Facebook Lite app, the world’s most popular social network is now rolling out the long-demanded feature for Android users as well. This means that pretty much all you need to do to grab the dark mode for your Android smartphone is to simply wait for a notification to emerge on your device’s display.
Why you need a dark mode
More and more apps and online services are embracing a dark theme, and there’s no wonder why. Such a feature relaxes the eyes especially at night, it improves the battery life on phones, tablets, and desktop computers, and more. A Facebook spokesperson said:
“We know people have been asking for Dark Mode, and they won’t have to wait much longer. People will start to see the option in their Facebook app settings as we roll it out globally,”
Here’s how to activate the dark mode for Facebook on Android devices:
- Update the Facebook app by going to Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
- Access the settings menu of the Facebook app.
- Scroll down and find the Dark Mode option.
- The final step is to turn on the toggle for enabling the dark mode feature.
Facebook remains an exciting platform where you can meet people with similar tastes as you, join events, try your luck on the marketplace, video call people, enter groups based on certain topics that interest you, test the new dating service, and many more.
