We have seen many popular apps implement some form of dark mode in their user interface and Facebook is not to be left behind. The company has already started to roll-out the feature in their other apps, namely Facebook Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp. We also saw Facebook testing a dark UI for their website, and a dark mode for their Facebook app seemed inevitable. However, what we didn’t expect was the Facebook Lite getting the feature before the main Facebook app.
Facebook Lite is a stripped-down version of the Facebook app. With a much smaller package size, it requires less resources to run, hence works perfectly on low-spec devices and in areas with poor internet connectivity. Its user interface is stripped down and blocky, but it still retains all the important features of Facebook. As a bonus, it does not require Facebook Messenger to send and receive messages. The messaging functionality is built-in to the app.
With dark mode reaching Facebook Lite, we hope this is a sign that we will see the feature in the main Facebook app somewhere in the near future.
