YouTube's dark theme finally available to Android users

The Best iPhone Apps Offering Dark Mode Recommended by Apple

Android users will now have access to YouTube's dark theme after it rolled out for Apple users in March earlier this year.

Back in May previous year, YouTube rolled out Dark Mode (or Dark Theme, whatever you want to call it) for its desktop site.

The dark mode option for iOS launched over four months ago. Go to Settings option and then choose the Dark theme option. The mobile dark theme is just like its web version, it uses black and dark shades of gray for the app's background.

The "Dark Mode", which converts Youtube's content to a dark background on white text is finally arriving on Android platform.

Looks like the wait is finally over for at least some Android users, who reported that the dark theme was mysteriously applied when they opened the official YouTube app on Android. The theme can be seen in the main feed, settings, and various other sections, as well as the video player page. For example, viewing YouTube in a room with dim light does not leave any strain on your eye. Apparently, the color isn't really black but it is more like a dark grey. Whether they choose to turn it off then or leave it enabled, the dark theme can be toggled on or off by going into the app's settings menu. However, with the inexplicable delay in implementing this feature on Android as against desktop and iOS, we aren't holding our breath. It's great for offering a more cinematic user experience, as well as cutting down the glare from light reflection on the screen.

Google regularly updates its video streaming service. The feature could be availed by the user as it comes with an option to make it switch off or on.
