I will review the dark matter search strategies by the Fermi-LAT team, with a particular emphasis on the searches in the Galactic and extragalactic diffuse emission. The diffuse measurement contains a wealth of information due to a good angular resolution of the Fermi-LAT telescope and high statistics of events. I will discuss how this information can be used to look for particularities of a dark matter signal, and what are the difficulties involved in this task, both on experimental and model building side. Some expected improvements brought in by complementary experiments such as AMS-02, Planck and CTA will also be given.
