Facebook Messenger Spotted Testing Dark Mode in Select Countries

Facebook had declared a large redesign of its popular Messenger app back in May this past year, during its yearly developer conference F8. Ever since then, the business was rolling out changes slowly across the world. Facebook Messenger is a popular program considering a high amount of individuals on the social network use it for communication with their friends and family. Facebook had guaranteed a dark mode in its Messenger program last year and it feels like the company is currently testing it in many nations.

Well known app teardown expert Jane Manchun Wong tweeted which Facebook has begun testing dark mode within the Messenger app, but only in certain countries. Wong also added that the new dark mode is not available everywhere yet and Facebook issues a’Work in Progress’ warning within the app for exactly the same reason.

Earlier, Wong managed to activate the attribute and she later tweeted screenshots of Messenger’s forthcoming dim mode. As anticipated, it transforms the white background colors into black and the text into white. However, since Facebook states in its own warning, there are a few subtle details which are still white.

Facebook has not shown where it is currently analyzing the new dark manner in Messenger. The feature is available beneath the’Me’ section in Messenger if your nation is currently supported for the test. The warning message issued while the attribute is enabled also clarifies that Facebook remains placing’finishing touches’ into the dark manner.

Earlier in September last year, a few users reported getting dark mode in the Messenger app before it had been rolled back.

With Facebook reportedly analyzing the new dark mode again, it doesn’t look like the final version is too far away today. For people who spend hours chatting on the Messenger app may appreciate the dark mode since it will be slightly easier on the eyes. Facebook Messenger currently has over 1.3 billion monthly users throughout the world.
