Here’s a fun way to turn on Dark Mode in Facebook Messenger

Published

on

Back in the month of October last year, Facebook announced that it will soon roll out a dark mode natively to the Facebook Messenger. The developers, however, have still not pushed the dark mode officially.

As it turns out, Facebook is providing us with a fun way to enable the Dark Mode in Facebook Messenger.

How to enable Dark Mode in Facebook Messenger?

All you need to do to enable the dark mode is this:

  • Open Messenger
  • Open any chat
  • Send a crescent moon emoji 🌙 to the friend
  • The moment you do that, you will be prompted to toggle the dark mode via a pop-up (A text saying “You Found Dark Mode!” will display on the screen)
  • Below the text, you will see a button which will take you to the settings menu (Turn on in settings)
  • Voila! You can toggle dark mode from there

Though, it is still in beta and you will be informed of the same as the app will display a message saying it’s still working on this feature so you won’t see Dark Mode everywhere in Messenger.

As of now, it is rather unclear as to how many countries the features has got rolled out to so far, but you can always give it a try as it is fun.

A little while ago, we got a bunch of wallpapers which blended in perfectly with the under-display camera layout of the recently launched Galaxy S10 lineup of smartphones.

You can have a look at them by following our existing coverage of the same.

Now, Samsung has decided to make things official as the company has launched official cut-out wallpapers for the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10E, and Galaxy S10+.

They, however, are not going to be free of cost

These cut-out wallpapers are available on the Samsung Theme Store. They, however, are not going to be free of cost.

If you want to download these wallpapers, they cost $0.99 a piece. The sad part is that you cannot even try them before downloading (for obvious reasons).

Still, if you want to try out some of the cut-out wallpapers for free, you can head to this SubReddit and get them all for free.

Update: We now have the download links to the wallpapers. You can get them all from the links below

Even after having almost all the latest tech, there will be a big bunch of people who would hate the design choice as the both the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the Samsung Galaxy S10+ feature an under-display camera which leaves a dark spot at the top right side of the display.

In case you are not a big fan of the holes too, these wallpapers are going to make you a lot happier.

Firefox sends lets you share up to 2.5GB of files to 100 recipients

Published

firefox send download free apk

Mozilla has recently launched a new file sharing service dubbed Firefox Send that lets you upload a file and share it to people.

Firefox Send is particularly helpful when it comes to sharing large files over email which is not possible.

With Firefox Send, users will be able to upload files up to 1GB at a time (up to 2.5GB if you have a Mozilla account. If you don’t, you can create one for free). Once the file(s) are uploaded, you can set the number of times people can download them (the limit is 100 though). Post 100 downloads, the link will expire and you would have to create a new one if you want more people to download the files.

At Mozilla, we are always committed to people’s security and privacy. It’s part of our long-standing Mozilla Manifesto. We are continually looking for new ways to fulfill that promise, whether it’s through the browser, apps or services. So, it felt natural to graduate one of our popular Test Pilot experiments, Firefox Send, send.firefox.com. Send is a free encrypted file transfer service that allows users to safely and simply share files from any browser. Additionally, Send will also be available as an Android app in beta later this week. Now that it’s a keeper, we’ve made it even better, offering higher upload limits and greater control over the files you share.

Furthermore, you can also set the time limit for the download links to expire (up to 7 days).

To make the files password protected, Firefox Sends gives you the provision to secure the files you are uploading with a password of your choice. Post the upload, you can share the URL and the password with the recipients.

How is Firefox Send different from a typical cloud service?

Well, the files are going to be uploaded on cloud only, but the fact that they get deleted after a specified period of time helps the case when we do not want to use up our cloud storage. Conversely, if you want the files to stay on the cloud for more than 7 days, Firefox Send is not the right choice for you.

Nevertheless, it’s a quick way to share files across, so one might want to give it a try.
