YouTube’s Android app is finally getting a dark theme

YouTube for Android gets dark theme YouTube dark theme now available for some on Android

YouTube had announced this past March that a dark mode option was coming to both Android and iOS after it first debuted on the Material Design-revamped version on the web. It is also worth noting that phones with the OLED panel will deliver darker blacks than standard display panels. If you have received the update, the dark mode toggle can be accessed by navigating to Settings (by tapping on the user avatar) General section of your Android device. Apparently, the dark theme started to roll out to Android users this week, but since this is a staged distribution, it will take some time to arrive on all devices.

The alternative theme exchanges YouTube's white backgrounds and menus for a deep grey, aiming to alleviate the eye strain associated with brighter light when viewing in a darker room or at nighttime.

YouTube is the world's most popular streaming service. The same goes for the minimized video player and all the tabs.

Prosecutors Believe Manafort Made $60 Million Consulting In Ukraine
A federal judge dismissed the civil case and Manafort appealed the decision to a higher court. The charges stem from Manafort's activities from 2006-2017.

The dark mode is automatically appearing on some people's YouTube apps, and some are saying that they've seen a notice about it pop up on the bottom of their screen.

Notably, this is not the only new feature which YouTube has added to its arsenal in the recent. We can only hope that the feature hits everyone sooner than later, but we all know how Google likes to toy with our emotions.

The YouTube for Android dark mode has been rolled out quietly it appears.
