Facebook To Roll Out Revamped Desktop App Early This Year

"The New Facebook" after the design overhaul, also ditched the signature blue banner that has been on the app since its launch. According to app hacker Jane Manchun Wong, who has been testing the new design for months, the new site will not automatically switch to dark mode if you have system-wide dark mode set on your PC; you have to manually toggle it on or off. It's finally rolling out to the desktop - about a year late.

When Facebook first spoke about the redesign a year ago, it referred to the new look as FB5 (or Facebook version 5). While the Facebook app for Android and iOS have received their said redesign, we are yet to see the Facebook.com website get a redesign as promised. This means the News Feed will be featured less, which is probably good news for users overall.

Facebook first announced its intention to launch a redesigned version of its desktop site back in April, and now some users are being granted access to it.

Dye loved to construct courses and holes that visually challenged players at all levels from the rabbit to the best in the game. Among the most famous is the TPC Sawgrass where The Players Championship has been held since 1982.

Everyone granted access to the New Facebook is invited to provide feedback to the company, which suggests that there may still be changes made depending on what users have to say about it. Staunch traditionalists - and confused elderly users - will be able to continue using the old (current) design once the updated interface goes lives for everyone. As a part of the new design, Facebook is going to make its communities the main focus of the social experience.

Dark mode has become a trendy feature in recent times.

Facebook is open to valuable feedbacks.
