Dark Mode and Coronavirus Tracking Comes to Facebook’s Android App


Facebook is getting ready to finally release the dark mode feature in the mobile application it has been working on for a long time. In addition, coronavirus tracking feature and silent mode will also be released. Silent mode was previously released for iOS in April.

We know that apart from Facebook’s main application, besides its applications such as Facebook Lite, Messenger and Instagram, the desktop application also has the dark mode feature. Another thing we know is that Facebook has been developing the dark mode feature for the Android app for quite some time. Judging by the news on 9to5Google, we will finally have the dark mode feature for the Facebook application on Android. Apart from the dark mode, other new features are ready to be released.

The color scheme of the dark mode in the mobile application appears to be similar to the color scheme in the desktop application: a dark gray background and blue highlights throughout the application. It also adapts to Android 10’s system-wide dark mode of the new version. In addition, you can manually control the dark mode inside the application. Screenshots from the new mode show that the feature is now in its final stage.

Coronavirus tracking feature is also coming

In addition to the dark mode, Facebook adds coronavirus tracking to its application. This tracking feature informs you by tracking the number of coronavirus cases in your area. The follower shows data for up to three weeks. At the top of the page, you can see the number of confirmed cases worldwide.

Apart from these two features, another new feature of Facebook is the silent mode. You can mute instant notifications and notification points thanks to this silent mode, which is currently available in the iOS Facebook app. You will also have the option to choose a routine for Silent Mode, along with ‘Scheduled Quiet mode’.

Facebook released the silent mode feature in April for iOS, but pointed to June for Android. It looks like the social media giant will keep its word. However, we have to wait for Facebook to announce its plans to broadcast dark mode and two other features more broadly.
