Yes! Dark mode finally comes to the YouTube app

March 14, 2018

Because everything looks better in black.

You may have seen that YouTube has already started implementing a dark theme all throughout its own site and just now the company is bringing dark mode to all its iOS and Android apps.

Dark mode was one of the most requested features on the YouTube app, this lets you view the app with less bright whites especially when using it at night or in a dark place. Additionally, using dark mode on smartphones with OLED-based displays can help it use less power.

To activate the dark theme, simply head to the settings panel in the YouTube app, and activate the dark theme toggle. Don’t worry if it doesn’t show up in your app, the activation of the feature is server side so it might take a while to roll out to everyone.
