Then it will send you to profile settings page where you can enable the dark mode by using the Dark Mode toggle.

This is the hidden option that you need to enable by using the moon emoji trick. When this option is available to all users, users can simply come to the settings menu and enable the dark mode by using the Dark Mode toggle.

If this trick doesn’t work for you, close the app and then open it again. Then open the conversation where you sent the emoji and double tap on the moon emoji you sent.

If you still fail to get the feature, you need to wait for a few days. The feature has not yet reached to your profile.

Dark Mode is helpful to access the app in the night as it doesn’t put a strain in eyes. In devices with AMOLED display, it also saves some battery juice and improve the battery backup.
