Facebook launches Messenger 'dark mode' with secret sneak peek

First of all, check that your Messenger is updated to the latest version. Once in Settings, you should see the option to enable dark mode.

Dark mode is accessible to Messenger users around the world on iOS and Android devices, but for now, you will have to use the trick above to enable it. To unlock it, you'll need to send a crescent moon emoji in any Messenger chat which will then prompt you to enable it. Thanks to a Reddit user who spotted a hidden method of enabling "Dark Mode" on Messenger and shared it with users on the forum. Personally, I'm not a fan because I get headaches from reverse type in general, but if you're interested in trying out this new feature, I've put the instructions below. (If sending out random emojis to contacts sounds unappealing, users can also send the moon to themselves.) A slew of tech outlets and blogs reported on the added feature Saturday, including Fast Company, Digital Hacks and The Verge.

"Messenger's dark mode provides lower brightness while maintaining contrast and vibrancy".

The operation is one of the retaliatory measures against Russian Federation that the United States has announced. It was the first offensive operation of this kind against Russian Federation , the newspaper notes.

I believe WhatsApp too will look more visually appealing under dark mode. Once you've completed the all above-mentioned steps, several moon emoji will rain down over your Messenger screen. Facebook has been consistently working on improving user experience and battery life consumption of the Facebook Messenger App.

Back in May of 2018, Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook announced a new "clear history" tool was on the way. If you don't see it, try updating your app and trying again.
