While doctors and researchers had condemned Blue-light emissions on smartphone displays as being a major cause of eye defects, the need for a dark mode or night mode is very important on Android applications. While some android smartphone makers now includes Eye-care mode on their devices which simply reduces the amount of blue lighting of their displays, it’s worth mentioning that older smartphones don’t have this functionality but then let’s talk about the Facebook Messenger.
Dark Mode aside helping your eye at night, it also saves your phone power especially if you use the AMOLED display.
Although Facebook Messenger has been testing Dark Mode for some times now, it’s said to now be available for every user all over the world.
While some might be having difficulty assessing it, it’s never too hard to uncover. All you need to do is send someone a moon emoji () in a chat, and a pop-up menu will be displayed.
“Some users had to double-tap the moon emoji, while others had to restart the Messenger app and enable the feature from settings”, reports AndroidPolice. Facebook confirmed its existence, and also said that an option from within the settings of the app will be available once an updated version will be available in the coming weeks.
