On laptops or desktops, it is the first thing Facebook is asking when one switches to the newer version of the social media site. Apart from incorporating dark mode, Facebook has added tabs that are similar to its mobile version and has also reworked the shortcuts bar.

The new Facebook has the Home, Watch and Market Place tabs at the top, while the option to toggle Dark Mode is in the dropdown menu at the top left of the screen.

The options at the top were earlier seen above the shortcuts. The new look even has a dedicated tab for Facebook Gaming as well.

The Stories section has been moved below Gaming, while the Create Post box has been moved further down.

Speaking to The Verge, a Facebook spokesperson said that people can opt to try out the new design before it actually becomes default later in 2020.

The new Facebook gives users easier access to Pages and Groups and allows them to get a preview on how they look on other platforms.

However, not every user has been made privy to the new development as the feature is still being rolled out by the social media giant.
