YouTube unveils Dark theme for Android

YouTube unveils Dark theme for Android

Back in March, Google originally announced it would begin rolling out a dark mode for its iOS and Android apps, fulfilling an item on many a users' wishlist.

The dark mode was first added for YouTube on the desktop late previous year.

The process to turn dark mode on and off is similar in laptop and desktop devices.

"When we designed Dark Mode, we debated having it exist in Outlook.com as a theme", the post read. The dark theme essentially inverts the colour of the YouTube app UI, replacing the white background with black.

YouTube developed Dark Theme specifically to cut down on glare and allow users to take in the true colors of the videos they're watching.

"Also, we imagine that there would be a dark experience for all available themes in the future, so having Dark Mode be a separate toggle would facilitate that".

Google has rolled out a new update for the YouTube app for Android devices. The dark version was to reduce stress on the eyes generated by brighter screens used in dark rooms.

From there, the usual white background that appears in the YouTube app will change to dark grey. Now, Android users are finally going to get their fix.

However, the roll out for the new feature is not universal, meaning not all devices can now take advantage of it. There below the 'Digital Well being's Remind me to take a broken feature lies the new Dark theme. Still, it's nice to see some variation within the app, especially since it hasn't received a design update for a long time.
