Ever since Facebook came out with its mobile app, we’ve been seeing constant updates and changes to the user interface, most of which were quite helpful when it comes to improving the user experience. However, one thing Facebook never changed is its signature blue color.
And although this specific shade is quite recognizable and unmistakably tied to Facebook, it could get quite dull and boring to look at, especially when you’ve been a user of the app for years, or even well over a decade.
Thankfully, there’s a way you could change the color of the Facebook app on your Android phone or tablet, as long as you are willing to jump through some hoops and take a few additional steps. Here’s how:
Changing the color of the Facebook mobile app
Facebook doesn’t offer different color theme options for its mobile application as of yet, which means that you will need to download a third-party app in order to change the color of Facebook on your android device.
The most popular application for achieving this is Multi Color for Facebook, which is free for download on Play Store. Here’s how the app works:
- Open the Play Store app on your device, and search for Multi Color for Facebook, and then download the app.
- Once the application has been installed, open it, and then sign in to your Facebook account.
- Then, simply tap on the color wheel icon in the upper-right corner of the screen, and select the color you prefer. After a couple of seconds, the new color theme will be applied to your Facebook.
While you have the option of changing the theme whenever you wish, keep in mind that your chosen color will only be applied through the Multi Color for Facebook app, and not the official Facebook app itself.
Note: It’s also worth mentioning that this is a third-party app, meaning that caution should always be advised. Even though users generally haven’t reported any issues with this specific application, it would still be wise to consider the necessity of changing the color of your Facebook when that entails entering your personal data in a third-party application.
While it’s necessary to find a workaround by downloading a separate application, the color theme on your Facebook app can still be changed in three quick and easy steps.
