The company has confirmed that this particular feature, the dark mode for mobile phones, is now live for a handful of people who constitute a very small population of Facebook mobile users. There is now no timeline for wider access, though this is one Facebook function you can count on eventually rolling out to everyone.

And Dark Mode is also available on both WhatsApp and Instagram - both of which are owned by Facebook.

Facebook told SocialMediaToday that it has started releasing Dark Mode for a limited percentage of users globally.

Facebook did not immediately respond to PCMag's request for comment.

Leicester travel ban is on the table, says Health Secretary
The measures were imposed on Guetersloh county, home to some 360,000 people, for an initial one-week period almost a week ago. The British Government has put the city of Leicester back in lockdown following an increase in coronavirus infections there.

This could mean that there are bugs with dark mode on mobile, so Facebook is holding back on testing with a larger group of users.

You can get Dark Mode on Messenger and Facebook Lite. The color would be grey with accent icons along with logos said the reports. This feature is launched by Facebook as a part of the redesigning intended for the desktop users of this social media platform. The feature was made available for desktop users just last month.

For those who may wish to disable the feature on their device, this will be possible through the in-app settings pane.

The option of low-light and dark mode enable users to change the background color of an app window to black which makes app easier to view. Keep an eye on the settings of your Facebook app to see if you're one of the chosen ones.
