In addition, some users who own more than one smartphone reported that while in one they did not have access to Facebook’s dark mode, in the other it did appear, but when they left the app and re-entered, the interface had automatically changed to the white and dark mode had completely disappeared.
The same thing happened with the iOS system.
The Techradar website undertook to get an explanation from Facebook, who responded as follows:
“We are aware that Some people have trouble accessing certain functions on the Facebook Android app. We are working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible, “said a spokesman for the social network.
Unfortunately, there was no mention that the problem was also occurring on Apple mobile devices, particularly affecting versions 3126.96.36.199.120 of the Android app and 3188.8.131.52.122 (293873823) of the iOS app.
Can Facebook’s dark mode be recovered?
The same Techradar people indicated that it was It is possible to recover this mode of the app for iOS users.
The steps to follow would be the following:
1) Uninstall and install Facebook.
2) Enter the app and check if the dark mode is already available and if not, you have to force close Facebook.
3) Then, go to “Iphone Settings” and there enter “Selection of applications”. Choose Facebook and in the options you must activate “HD video upload” and “HD photo upload”.
4) Then, go to Facebook again and in theory, the dark mode should already be available.
These steps are only for iOS devices, although as the hours pass, Android users assured that the dark mode has returned to work normally.
