Facebook is finally testing dark mode for its mobile users, starting with a small number of iOS users. Dark Mode, meant to lessen glare, was made available to desktop users first.

Facebook took their sweet time bringing it to their mobile app, considering their other apps — Instagram, Whatsapp and Messenger (along with rivals Twitter and Google) — have been rocking it for some time now.

Dark Mode is a welcome addition. It not only lessens glare and eye fatigue, it also helps save battery life. That’s not to mention the black/gray aesthetic that everyone’s into nowadays.

At the moment though, Facebook is still dry running dark mode. I guess we have to wait awhile until it becomes available for everyone.
