Facebook confirms that the company is testing dark mode for smartphone apps after successfully launching the feature for its desktop interface.

The social media giant has made dark mode available to a very small percentage of people globally, a spokesperson told The Verge in an email Sunday.

The smartphone version of the dark mode is “meant to cut down on glare,” particularly in low-light environments, said the Facebook spokesperson.
