Dark mode on apps are a great way of reducing eye strain when used in the dark, or at the very least provides users with an alternative look. Earlier this year YouTube announced that they would be rolling out dark mode to its mobile apps, where iOS devices were among the first to receive it.
A couple of months ago the feature began making its way to some Android users, but now a report from Android Police has revealed that the feature has since opened up to pretty much all Android users (assuming your device is compatible to receive the latest version of the YouTube app).
As you can see in the screenshot above, dark mode for YouTube will basically apply a dark theme to the app. Functionality and everything else remains exactly the same, and that the main difference would only be in the colors of the app, which have been designed to be darker so that using your phone in the dark or in low-light settings won’t be so glaring.
To enable dark mode, all users have to do is go to the app’s settings and toggle it and they’ll be good to go. The dark mode on mobile now pretty much means that dark mode is available across all of YouTube’s locations, including desktop which also has a dark mode.
