Messenger Lite is a communication app for Android users with lesser RAM Storage and a slow internet connection. Like the Messenger app, you can communicate with your Facebook friends by sending messages, photos, videos, and stickers. However, Messenger Lite lacks several features like a dark mode setting, group chat/calls, and stories. Even though there is no way to bring other features, one can bring dark mode easily by enabling developer settings on your Android device.
Quick Guide: Open device Settings → choose About Phone → tap on Build number multiple times to enable developer options → return to Settings → choose Developer Options → turn on Force Dark mode.
How to Turn on Messenger Lite Dark Mode
We have tried enabling system-wide dark mode on Android to check whether Messenger Lite follows the system setting. But, it has failed.
1: On your Android device, open the Settings app.
2: On the Settings page, scroll down to the bottom and choose the About Phone option.
3: Find the Build number option and tap on it multiple times.
4: Upon tapping it for multiple times, a pop-up stating You are now a Developer or Developer mode has been turned On will appear on the screen.
5: After enabling the developer setting, return to the main page of Settings and choose the Developer options.
6: Under the developer options, you can find several new settings. Scroll down and find the Force Dark mode option. Turn on the feature by tapping on the toggle.
7: The background of your Android device will change from the usual light theme to the dark theme.
8: Now, launch the Messenger Lite app to use with the dark theme.
If you had the standard version of the Messenger app, you can enable dark mode on Messenger by simply using the app settings.
