How To Turn On Facebook Messenger Dark Mode - Step by Step Guide

Did you know that Facebook has just made the beta version of its Dark Mode for Messenger available for Android smartphone and iPhone users?

There are several advantages to turning on this feature.

First, many users say that dark or night mode is easier on the eyes.

Second, it makes most smartphones' screen bezels even less noticeable, which makes the display more visually appealing.

And third, they say it even helps increase the uptime or battery life of mobile devices since lighting a white background tends to use up more energy.

Since this setting is still being polished, enabling it is bit tricky. In fact, the method can be described as "hidden" or "secret".

Good thing, I already know how to do it -- and since I want all of my readers to also enjoy it, I'm going to share exactly how it's done.

But before that, make sure that you have the latest version of the Messenger App on your handset. If you don't have it, download the application via Google Play Store or Apple App Store.

Alright! Now, let's do it step by step. It's actually quite easy to do.

Step One: Just open a Chat box with any of your friends on Messenger.

Step Two: Tap on the message box and click on the "emoji" icon of your keyboard. Look for the "Crescent Moon" icon as shown in the photo below and send it to your friend.

Depending on your keyboard, the Crescent Moon can be found in the Location, Travel, or Time section. Just be patient when looking for it.
