How to turn on messenger’s Dark Mode manually


With dark mode gaining popularity on every social media front, Facebook is now testing its way into extending this ability to its Messenger platform.

Although the feature has not been officially announced, one can still turn it on manually. This is how you do it:

  • Send someone a crescent moon emoji, or you can also send it to yourself
  • Tap the ensuing popup menu / double tap the moon emoji / restart Messenger
  • Turn the Dark Mode Toggle button on

And Voila! The dark mode of your Messenger is all set to be used.

However, there are still some Android users who may not be able to see the update. It is working fine in iOS.
