Facebook tests dark mode in the Messenger app for Android and iPhone (iOS) phones. The function is useful for those who usually use the app in dark environments or before bed, as it avoids impairing vision with the clarity of the phone screen. With the feature enabled, the messenger replaces the white chat background with the black color. The font color of the texts is also changed for readability.
