I don't know if it's just me but the only way I can set dark mode for Facebook on my galaxy fold 3 is thru the front screen. Once I exit the app and try to open it in the inner display, it turn back to light mode and it won't let me change it to dark mode even when the option appears. I do not know if this is a developer problem or if it has something to do with the new update.

This may not be what you want, overall....

In Developer Options, there is a setting "Force Dark Mode" ... keep in mind, that's a global setting

Yep I actually tried it. I mean it did get the job done but not for the other apps. ☹️

I agree. The only thing with that is that barcodes and QR codes can't be read. It's a nice setting to though to get all your apps in dark mode thanks to the developers dragging their feet or blatantly refusing to support it. But you definitely have to turn it off for apps like Starbucks for instance when you need to have to cashier scan your barcode for your rewards. Google should provide a fix for that setting to at least respect barcodes and QR codes. I know it's a developer option so they're not invested in doing that since it's not technically meant for the public but... it would be nice.

Fave book dark mode works & doesn't work with fold 3. I have the same issue. If I ever get my android 12 update, maybe it will be fixed.

Funny thing is my Fold 3 is already updated to Android 12. I thought the update would fix it... Unfortunately it didn't...

the dark mode should work on FB Lite, I swapped over to Lite since it was simpler design anyway.

FB lite is kinda like using the Facebook app but then in like a browser form. So when you're refreshing or changing pages, it has a loading bar on top. Personally, I find it slightly annoying but dark mode does work.
