Facebook is introducing a new feature to its Android app today that will let users add background color to text posts. A color selector option will be added to the status bar, allowing users to choose a color or gradient to coat your content with. The feature won’t work for images or videos. Android users will get the feature this week, while Web and iOS users may need to wait more than a month for it to appear.
The change is a big leap from Facebook’s longstanding blue-and-white color scheme, and it’s unclear what prompted Facebook to create this feature. If the feature sees widespread use, expect your Facebook experience to get a lot more colorful in 2017.
