Dark mode has finally come to Facebook Messenger.

Dark mode was one of the features detailed when Facebook introduced Messenger 4—the simplified version of its flagship messaging application—last October.

Product manager Bridget Pujals said in a blog post that users can access dark mode by sending the crescent moon emoji, adding that the feature will be fully rolled out in the app’s settings in the coming weeks.

She wrote, “Messenger’s dark mode provides lower brightness while maintaining contrast and vibrancy. Dark mode cuts down the glare from your phone for use in low light situations, so you can use the Messenger features you love no matter when or where you are.”
