According to Facebook-beta, FB5 will be much simpler, faster, more immersive. It’ll make it easier for the users to find what they were looking for. The company is currently testing Twitter dark mode. The release of the FB5 update is yet to come soon, while it hasn’t provided the public release date yet. However, Zuckerberg has said to release the Fb beta 2019 pc FB5 build for developers later today.
Facebook New UI
Here’s how the Facebook New UI will look something like this as shown in the image below:
The company has started the public beta testing of its Facebook website redesigned interface that bears a striking resemblance to the screenshots showed off by the company at its latest F8 developer conference earlier this year. The facebook beta tester can only access this dark theme mode for their social platform FB. Apart from that, it can be seen from the screenshots shared by some Twitter users, the new UI contains not only an optional dark mode but also a distinctly Twitter-like interface. You can also
opt in to Facebook beta program.

As you can see from the tweets, the company is inviting select users to test out the new UI with a simple invitation that reads: “We are excited for you to try a fresh, simpler experience of its FB website.” Calling its new UI a “new streamlined way to navigate,” the company says its “Larger fonts and simplified layouts will make it easier to do what you want.”

How to get the Facebook beta
Do note that these early beta testers will also have the option to go back to the old UI via a toggle in case they don’t like the new interface. However, the company is yet to confirm the developments officially, and there’s no immediate word on when it might be rolled out universally. Also, the screenshots seen above represent the test version, which means the final product may differ somewhat from these images.
As things stand now, you can only get access to this new twitter-like facebook dark testing version is on an invite-only basis. This will be changed in the days ahead with more users starting to try out the new interface. The Facebook beta website is currently working via received invite-only, but from what I can see, the dark mode makes it look fairly compelling. But Still, I’m yet to be convinced by all the changes.
