And since the mode is the highlight of this year's Android Q and iOS 13 OS versions, other apps and services are trying to push this new look more than ever. As per reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong, the social media giant is now working on the Dark Mode for the main Facebook app for Android. Thanks to tech blogger and app researcher Jane Manchun Wong, we're getting a first look at what the dark redesign could look like.

As is the case with many new Facebook features, Dark Mode is likely going to go through internal testing before it sees a soft roll out to only a fraction of Facebook's user base. "I am as curious about the release timeline of Facebook mobile Dark Mode as you are!", said Wong. As you can see in the screenshot above, the dark mode definitely isn't ready for public consumption just yet, but it's clear that its development is well underway. But the risks could be mitigated by a dark mode, which Wong discovered in the mobile app's code.

Nevertheless, the Dark Mode should arrive in the Facebook app for Android by the end of this year. "For example, dark text displaying on a dark background, vice versa".

In the screenshot we can see a mostly dark UI, with the top navigation portion still white and featuring grey buttons.
