Finally, Facebook has successfully tested a dark mode in its mobile app publicly, after months of testing.

MacRumors has also shared with its readers that many people have reported access to the night-friendly option.
Facebook Tests Dark Mode in its Mobile App
If you got the option, you will notice that there is a Dark Mode button in the Settings & Privacy section under the Menu tab. You have the option to turn it on or off, or leave it up to your system-level settings. In case, you have turned on the OS-level dark mode, then the dark mode will automatically become active when the sun goes down.
A Facebook company spokesperson said as quoted by the report, “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,”
Well, the feature took a long time to hit the mobile app. Back in March, the desktop users received the dark mode and companion apps like Messenger have had the option since 2019. But, it is not clear that why the feature took a lot of time to join the mobile app.
