Facebook redesign with dark mode rolls out for some users

The default design for the new Facebook interface is becoming clearer, but the new dark mode settings offer the best of both worlds. After the users agree to the to explore the new Facebook, they'd be able to set the website to either two of the modes: white backgrounds and bright colors, or a dark-mode background that's all rife these days.

It has been more than a year since Mark Zuckerberg unveiled a fresh design for Facebook that de-emphasized its News Feed at Facebook's F8 conference.

Approximately eight months after Facebook originally announced that the Facebook design which we know and (maybe) love will be but a thing of our memories, the new layout is emerging.


Some users have already got access to a test version of the new interface.

However, it's now January 2020, and the redesigned desktop experience is still missing in action.

Facebook announced a new design previous year in April 2019 with brighter icons and an overall less cluttered look.


Facebook also confirmed to CNET that it now plans to release "The New Facebook" to everyone before the onset of this year's spring.

Before the feature applies broadly, the selected users would get a pop-up inviting them to test "The New Facebook", as dubbed by the company.

It's also offering users the option to switch back to the old Facebook design. Then in November, Facebook started testing the dark mode on its own standalone app. If they don't like it, users can now revert back to the old look, as well as offer feedback and flag bugs.
