YouTube Goes Dark on Mobile Devices

YouTube has actually been testing the dark mode within the iOS app for a few months already, and the company revealed that it has become one of the most requested features on mobile since the theme launched on the desktop in May. Lo and behold, YouTube for Android and iOS is finally gaining the elusive dark mode, reports The Verge.

To activate the mode, you simply tap your account profile picture in the YouTube app, navigate to Settings, and flick on "Dark mode".

YouTube explains right next to the desktop dark theme setting that it turns the light surfaces of the page dark, creating an experience ideal for night. In a way this is a great option but ... This feature is primarily geared towards users who tend to browse YouTube late at night when the website's ordinary bright colors can be a little hard on the eyes. Now, we know that it is on iOS and that it will soon be debuting on Android.
