Video Transcript:
It’s a bad habit almost everyone engages in — looking at their phone or tablet when they are laying in bed at night. What most people don’t think about is how bad that is for their eyes. As of March 2019, Facebook is looking to make your last Facebook Messenger check-in of the day a little less painful, introducing a dark mode that reduces overall brightness and still offers a strong contrast. The only catch is that Facebook makes you jump through some hoops to activate the Messenger night mode feature.

Now let’s walk through the steps to turn on Facebook Messenger dark mode.

Step 1. Launch the Facebook Messenger app on your iPhone, iPad or Android device. You’ll arrive at your Facebook Messenger home screen.

Step 2. Tap to open any of your conversations. If you don’t want to bother anyone else, you can open a conversation with yourself.

Step 3. Tap the “Emoji” icon that appears on the right side of the text entry field. The Emoji icon is a blue smiley face. A menu appears on the bottom part of your screen, with sections for stickers, GIFs, and emoji. Tap “Emoji.” Emojis will appear on the lower part of your screen.

Step 4. Swipe through the emoji options until you arrive at the Animal and Nature section, and then find the crescent moon icon in the animal and nature section. Tap the crescent moon icon. That emoji will appear in your text entry box.

Step 5. Tap the “Send” icon to send the crescent moon emoji to the recipient. Animated crescent moon emoji icons will fall down your screen for a few seconds. After all of the crescent moon emoji icons disappear, a message appears at the top of your screen informing you that you’ve found dark mode.

Step 6. Navigate back to your Facebook Messenger home screen and tap your profile icon in the upper left corner of the screen to open your Facebook Messenger settings menu. You’ll now see an option at the top of your settings menu for Dark Mode.

Step 7. Tap the toggle to the right of Dark Mode to turn the feature on. The Facebook Messenger dark mode color scheme will instantly be applied. The night mode scheme will be applied to all of your Facebook Messenger sections, including your Chat screen, your conversations, your Contacts screen, and your Discover screen.

  1. Thanks bro, really needed this. And I dont mind it being ahort at all. You wanted to make it so that anyone can follow you and it worked hahah.

  2. I have only the Messenger app. So far it doesn't give me dark mode. Will I have to download the Facebook app for this to work? The rest of the doable apps on my phone are in dark mode. Can't get Messenger in dark mode.

  3. That worked great on my iPhone X but it won’t work on my iPad 2018 with an A9 chip inside. It just get my predictions that the new IOS 13 won’t work for old devices.

  4. Don’t nobody have time for that. It’s like me asking a customer how they’re doing and they end up telling a story of their life.

  5. Nice close up of the phone screen and you talked in a calm voice,a little slower would be great,you where the best instructor of this on YouTube !! Thank you !!
