Facebook Messenger Dark Mode now available globally

Last month, Facebook included a new dark mode in its Messenger app, which had to be activated by using a hidden Easter Egg.

Facebook has now rolled out the feature with with a simple toggle switch from settings.

To activate, simply tap your profile photo in Messenger to access your settings and toggle on dark mode to switch the chat aesthetic from white to black.

Dark Mode is more than just a personal preference as it can save battery life if you spend a lot of time within the app. This is thanks to the fact that your phone isn’t spending all of that energy to light your bright screen up. Especially if you have a OLED screen since the black portions of the screen feature pixels that aren’t lighting up at all.
