Facebook Messenger’s Android app is reportedly getting System-wide Dark Mod. This is an additional Dark Mode option that allows users to select Dark Mode based on the phone’s system settings. Previously, the app just offered the choice to enable or disable Dark Mode. The system-wide dark mode feature is already available on the iOS app.
A Reddit user discovered the new Dark Mode options for Messenger that Facebook seems to be experimenting with. The new feature was discovered in the Facebook Messenger app version 322.214.171.124.119, according to the post.
As per the claim, When you select the System setting, the app will use the Dark Mode settings you’ve chosen for your phone. Facebook first added the Dark Mode feature to its Messenger app in April 2019.
Furthermore, Instagram implemented Dark Mode in October 2019, WhatsApp implemented Dark Mode in March 2020, and Facebook implemented Dark Mode for its native app in November 2020.
Dark Mode relieves eye strain by transforming black text on a white backdrop to white text on a black backdrop. Furthermore, if the device has an OLED display, Dark Mode can assist save battery life.
