Facebook discovered that its app is very white and when it’s on the night, the light can double which could be harmful to our eyesight. They decided to roll out “FB5” to their users which promises fresh new design and more secured privacy and now, dark mode is next to follow.
According to Jane Manchon Wong, who named herself as a Leaker who leaks unreleased Facebook features, said;
“I came across this unreleased Dark Mode in Facebook’s mobile app for Android by looking into the code underneath, which indicates Facebook has recently started implementing the long-awaited Dark Mode into their mobile app.”

For now, only certain parts of Facebook app has been reworked to be working on Dark mode like the dark test displaying on a dark background and vice versa. Not only on mobile, but on desktop site as well.
Due to this, the app is still not yet available for the public but Facebook said on Twitter that we would start receiving the new design update right away. Therefore, It should take few months before the dark mode will be released for the public consumption.
