Google is Finally Adding a Dark Mode to YouTube on iOS and Android

YouTube's mobile app finally gets a dark theme

YouTube introduced a dark theme on desktop previous year, so it was really only a matter of time before the feature made its way to the mobile app. YouTube says that the theme will minimize glare and help viewers see the true colors of the videos they're watching on their phones.

Google is rolling out its dark theme update to iOS users today, and plans to release the update to Android users "soon". That's certainly the case with YouTube's "Dark theme", which arrives today on the iOS version of the app. Lo and behold, YouTube for Android and iOS is finally gaining the elusive dark mode, reports The Verge. The feature was heavily requested for mobile apps after the launch on desktop.

For the unaware, Dark Mode is a feature that essentially flips YouTube's normal white color scheme to one mostly composed of various shades of black and gray. Regardless, we'll be letting you know the moment we catch wind of it going live.

Glushkov left Russian Federation after a Moscow court sentenced him to a two-year suspended sentence for fraud in 2006. Police said a post-mortem showed no sign of a violent struggle and an inquest recorded an open verdict.

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.

With the update, YouTube joins a growing list of apps that feature a dark mode. At the time, the feature was said to be available for some mobile users.

Dark theme is not just a cool addition, it can be easier on the eyes of users after a long period of time.
