At its developer conference past year, Facebook promised that it would bring dark mode to Messenger; it looks like the company's rolling out the feature at last.

Now it is easier to read your messages at night, as Facebook has started rolling out a new dark mode in its Facebook Messenger app for Android and iOS. It's still a work in progress, but it appears to be available to a lot more users as of this weekend, on both the iOS and Android versions of the messaging app.

Some users have reported instances of a pop-up window that will inform you of the new feature, though that didn't happen in our experience. Once in Settings, you should see the option to enable dark mode.

Just go and launch the Facebook Messenger app and send a crescent moon emoji to any of your friends or family.

I attempted the following steps from my iPhone, confirming that the steps do indeed work - if Facebook has activated the feature for your account. This mode brings a nice dark interface to an otherwise bright app that really helps in reducing eye fatigue. Once you do that, a rain of moons will fall across your screen with a notification at the top of your screen notifying you that "You've found Dark Mode!" before prompting you to activate it in your settings.

Some say you'll need to tap the moon emoji in order to enable access to Dark Mode, but mine automatically popped up after I sent the emoji. Head over to settings and enable the dark mode.

Toggle the switch then BAM! instant Dark Mode! In the meantime, you can use the Easter Egg to make dark mode work on Facebook Messenger.
