To take advantage of this method, your iPhone must of course be jailbroken. That's no problem, as long as you want to get some work done. Jailbreak is now supported via iOS 13.4.1, the most recent public version of iOS at the moment. Of course, jailbreakers will work hard to crack iOS 13.4.5 as soon as it drops.
Instructions for Android
If you rock an Android device, you have a few more ways to crochet. dark mode looks on facebook than iPhone users. That's due to Android's customizable nature and the prevalence of non-traditional third-party apps on the platform. Check out the methods below and see if something works for you.
Method 1: Waiting for the Official Update
This may sound redundant, but it is as true for Android as it is for iOS. Facebook
is working on a native Dark Mode for its app, so from now on it's just a waiting game. While this dark mode is not available on Facebook for Android's beta or alpha, some have cracked . We don't know how, but it's a good sign that Facebook is well underway.
Method 4: View a Facebook Wrapper
Facebook and Facebook Lite are not the only ways to experience Facebook in app form. Instead, try a wrapper, which is essentially a remote client. The advantage of using a wrapper is that these apps can implement functions that the original app developer did not have. In this case, the function in question is dark mode.
A good start would be
Frost, a favorite among fans of Facebook wrapper enthusiasts. However, you will not find Frost in the Play Store. Instead, you need to go to F-Droid and download the app there. You can also download the APK from the link below, which is for version 2.4.4, which is the latest Frost version as of this writing, but you'll want to check F-Droid for future updates.
F-Droid APK Link: Frost (Free)
Once you have installed Frost and logged into Facebook, activating the dark theme is easy. All you have to do is tap the Settings gear in the top right corner and then tap & # 39; Appearance & # 39; to click. Here you can click on & # 39; Theme & # 39; tap where you can choose from the night modes & # 39; Dark & # 39; or & # 39; AMOLED & # 39 ;.
Method 5: Activate a dark mode flag in Chrome  If you've never heard of Chrome flags, you're in for a treat. Flags are experimental features that Chrome hides from developers to tinker with. These features aren't necessarily user-centric, but they're remarkably easy to access once you know how it works. One of them helps us here as it forces light themed websites to switch to dark mode.
To get started, go to
chrome: // flags in your Chrome browser and then search for "Force dark mode for web content" (searching for "dark mode" should get this too). Then tap "Default" and then select "Enabled" from the list of options. Once you do that, tap on "Restart" at the bottom and open Chrome again. If you go to Facebook's mobile site now, you will see that the whole site has got a night theme.
However, you're not done yet. You may see a bit of white at the bottom of the screen. This inconsistency is easy to resolve. Just tap the vertical ellipse icon in the top right corner and then tap & # 39; Settings & # 39 ;. Now tap on & # 39; Theme & # 39; and then choose & # 39; Dark & # 39 ;. Chrome gets a dark theme, which also fits nicely with the dark mode of Facebook mobile.
] If You Are Afraid of All Your Facebook needs on Facebook mobile, we understand that. A full app is always preferred. Still, Facebook mobile allows you to enable notifications with Chrome so you don't miss any updates when you're not on the site. It may be a more viable option than you might think.
