This way you can make Facebook Messenger more eye-friendly when used in a low-light environment. The downside is that all edits are available for the current chat. Changes are not applied app-wide, which means that you have to tweak each conversation separately, if you want to create a Dark Mode for all conversations.

Fact: Facebook Messenger 4 has started rolling out today, but the new version will become available gradually to worldwide users. It can take days, if not weeks until everyone can update. FB Messenger is downloadable for free from the App Store. Tap here to download and update to Messenger 4! For more info about Messenger 4 you can read Facebook’s official announcement.
