YouTube’s dark theme finally available to Android users

The Best iPhone Apps Offering Dark Mode Recommended by Apple YouTube for Android gets dark theme

If you want to give the new feature a try, enabling it is simple - just open the YouTube app on your Android device, visit the Settings menu, tap the General option, and then toggle on "Dark theme". As stated by Youtube, the Dark Mode feature was very much in demand from the users' and by taking note of it, Youtube worked out this feature.

The dark mode was first added for YouTube on the desktop late a year ago. There's an option to turn it off, as well as one that dismisses it.

Dark Mode is now only available on the Outlook.com web app, and only available through the beta version, which can be easily enabled by toggling a switch at the top of the inbox. Not only that, but the black theme of the application under the dark mode setting will save battery as well.

Once the Dark Mode is enabled, the color of app's UI elements is inverted from white to black (check image above).


We have not seen the feature appear on our Android devices yet (Samsung Galaxy S8 in my case), but Engadget explains how you can access Dark Mode if it has reached your phone or tablet.

It appears so that Google is finally rolling out YouTube's dark theme for Android users. The dark version was to reduce stress on the eyes generated by brighter screens used in dark rooms. It's not been confirmed how soon this feature will become a permanent fixture but it may be some time before this feature is released for all. Reports have confirmed the pitfall of using apps with white background in the low light conditions. The dark mode comes with a toggle that allows the user to switch off the mode and revert to the light theme, if they wish to. Others have reported the feature in their YouTube app but it hasn't been rolled out to everyone.

Android owners can at long last fulfil their dreams of scrolling through YouTube on their devices with a cool dark ambience accompanying their video discovery.

YouTube has announced several updates that improve the experience of consuming VR content on its app.
