After launching a dark mode for its desktop interface, Facebook confirms it is testing a dark mode for its mobile apps as well.

The mobile version of the dark mode Facebook introduced last month for desktop is “meant to cut down on glare,” particularly in low-light environments, the spokesperson said. There’s no timeline yet for when the dark mode will be available to all mobile users, however.
Users who already have the new dark mode on mobile tweeted screenshots of what it looks like:
