Oh, Dark Mode for YouTube Android App is Coming Soon

Oh, Dark Mode for YouTube Android App is Coming Soon

Starting today, YouTube will be rolling out the Dark Mode feature to mobile devices beginning with iOS-powered smartphones and tablets.

The feature debuted on the YouTube desktop client past year. YouTube says Dark theme was one of the "top requested features on mobile".

Dark mode has a few advantages.

Our first hint of serious work towards a dark mode for YouTube landed last fall, when we saw signs of a dark theme for the app's video-playback panel. Offering a dark theme on YouTube also makes sense from an aesthetic perspective because it gives the app a more cinematic feel. YouTube reportedly said Android users will be receiving the feature "soon" but did not specify an exact release date. The company introduced a hidden dark mode for the desktop client in May 2017, around the same time when the service rolled out its cleaner and simpler Material Design-inspired interface. Regardless, we'll be letting you know the moment we catch wind of it going live.

For those who like to watch YouTube in bed at night, this Dark theme will help keep brightness to a minimum, especially if you have a partner who is sensitive to light at night.

With the update, YouTube joins a growing list of apps that feature a dark mode.
