Facebook Messenger is one of the most popular instant messenger apps in the world. People are used to sitting on the Messenger tick-tocking whole nights but that leaves bad stress on eyes. For resolving this issue Dark Mode was introduced in many apps but Facebook Messenger seems to be lagging behind in launching the Night Mode. Even though they have not launched the feature to all the users but Facebook has already developed the code for it and kept it hidden in its app.

Here I am going to share with you just how can you activate this hidden Dark Mode embedded in the Facebook Messenger! This method is so easy and silly that it might make some people chuckle. Also, this method may not work on some devices as Facebook is rolling out this hidden update account-by-account.

Here Is How To Activate The Hidden Dark Mode in Facebook Messenger

The 2-step process to activate hidden Dark Mode in Facebook Messenger:

Step 1 – Send Moon Emoji

The first step is to send the left-facing crescent moon icon (🌙), not the moon emojis with smiley faces. If Facebook has hidden this easter egg for your account then the moon emoji will run down the thread and a pop-up will appear on your screen saying “You Found Dark Mode!” Tap on the “TURN ON IN SETTINGS” button to turn the Dark Mode on.

Step 2 – Go to Settings to start Dark Mode
