Interfaces with a dark theme that has become a trend in applications in recent years have also attracted the attention of social media giants. So much so that the popular apps we use frequently start to switch to dark mode one by one. Now the expected feature has come to Facebook . Now Facebook users will have access to the redesigned dark interface starting today.
Facebook finally allowed desktop users to access dark mode. Facebook told TechCrunch, “From today, most users on Facebook will have access to the new desktop design.” The feature is quickly available from the settings drop-down menu. Facebook has been working on the dark theme for a long time. The company promised a cleaner and faster desktop interface at the F8 Developers conference last spring. A limited number of users started testing the renewed design in January.
When you use the desktop version of Facebook, you will see a banner at the top of the page asking if you want to try new Facebook. For now, you can return to classic Facebook. However, the dark mode can be made default by later in the year. Other changes include tabs like Facebook Watch, Marketplace, Google Groups, and Center. Even if users who experience the new design do not like all aspects of the interface, the dark theme will most likely become popular.
Dark mode already exists in a number of Facebook-owned apps, including Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp. Also, this innovation can help reduce eye strain as users will use their phones more during Corona virus pandemics .
