YouTube Dark

Although it was initially announced back in March as coming to Android and iOS, Google took their sweet time rolling it out to Android. But it's now finally here, and you can enjoy the dark theme on YouTube for Android in the latest release. Here's how you can enable it!

How to enable YouTube's dark theme on Android

  • Open YouTube for Android
  • Tap on your avatar in the right corner
  • Go to Settings
  • Go to General
  • Tap on Dark theme to enable it

If you do not see it available as of yet, make sure you're on the latest version of YouTube. There are also ways you can force it to appear such as opening YouTube, and then closing it from your recent apps and then reopening it. In any case, it's there, and my eyes are thankful. How about you, you dig it?
