YouTube dark mode rolls out for Android devices

The Best iPhone Apps Offering Dark Mode Recommended by Apple

The feature was announced in March a year ago, and first rolled out to the iOS version of YouTube's mobile app.

Upon doing so, YouTube's blindingly-white color scheme will switch to a darker, charcoal color.

The rollout is occurring in phases and there's no definite timeframe that details when it will be completed.

Given that both iOS and Android device owners like to bring their phones to bed with them, it's nice to see Google extend this feature to the rest of their user base.

YouTube's dark mode has been live on the web and on iOS for months now. The dark UI is especially helpful during the night time as it reduces eye piercing glare, thus helping to prevent strain on your eyes while watching videos.

9to5Google reports that the feature began rolling out yesterday, notifying users with a prompt.

Now, don't panic if you still don't have see the option.

Here are all 5 YouTube apps and what they do! Even though a formal announcement of sorts has not been made that this mode is available for Android, users can now find it applied automatically with a pop-up at the bottom of the screen which mentions that this feature is available now. But you can always go to the General Settings options to toggle it on or off at will as Redditor Absinth92 indicates.
