Yesterday, we wrote that Facebook Messenger had a secret dark mode that could only be accessed by sending one of your contact’s a moon emoji.

Today, Facebook made fun of everyone who didn’t know, and simultaneously announced that dark mode is now officially rolling out to users of the new version of Messenger.

“We’re over the moon to share that dark mode for Messenger is finally making its debut,” smirked Bridget Pujals, Messenger’s product manager on Facebook’s news site.

“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,” she added.

The social network confirmed that the UI tweak will be available, without the moon emoji Easter egg, in the coming weeks.
