In Engadget Mexico, we have verified that dark mode has already disappeared from Facebook app in iOS and Android apps. However, strange things happened. Firstly, on Android, I checked on a smartphone that the dark mode option had completely disappeared from the app, while I was able to access the mode normally on another smartphone. However, when I left Facebook and logged in again, the interface automatically changed to white, and now, the dark mode option has completely disappeared.
On the other hand, the same situation happened on iOS. We activated dark mode, left Facebook and when we got back it had disappeared from the interface and options. However, oddly enough, to repeat the process of closing the app and logging in again, the dark mode appeared again on Facebook for iOS without apparent reason.
TECRADAR I got a Facebook position Regarding the situation:
We are aware that some people face trouble accessing certain features on the Facebook Android app. We are working to get things back to normal as quickly as possible.
