YouTube extends its 'Dark Theme' to Android and iOS

Sometimes the best features come when tech companies let their programmers and designers play around a bit. That’s certainly the case with YouTube’s “Dark theme,” which arrives today on on the Android and iOS versions of the app. The feature, which is already available on desktop but pretty well hidden, lets you change the regular bright white theme to a more cinematic, black and grey look. YouTube says Dark theme was one of the “top requested features on mobile.”

You have to jump through hoops to access the feature on desktop via the developer mode, but on mobile, things are a lot simpler. To access it, you simply head to your account icon, hitting settings, and look for a setting called “Dark theme.” You can then toggle it on or off, as shown in the GIF below. The feature is rolling out today, but as usual, it might not hit your neck of the woods right away.
