YouTube for iOS Launches 'Dark Theme', Now Live in Canada

YouTube's mobile app finally gets a dark theme

YouTube is finally giving its mobile app a dark theme, almost a year after the Google subsidiary introduced the night-friendly mode on desktop. To access it, you simply head to your account icon, hitting settings, and look for a setting called "Dark theme".

The new theme is being launched for YouTube 's iPhone and iPad app first, and is supposed to come to Android mobile devices soon.

The dark theme will be available on iOS starting today. YouTube tested the setting on desktop during the first few months of 2017 before rolling out its new desktop design in August.

Android as a platform steered away from having a dark theming option back in 2016 as a way to cater to nighttime ease of use.

United Nations says Facebook played a role in Myanmar murders
Myanmar's envoy Htin Lynn rejected Lee's remarks and called for the council to fire her. Facebook has not yet made any public comment on the charges yet.

Reportedly, dark mode on Android is coming "soon", but whether that means days or weeks, we can't yet say.

Dark theme is not just a cool addition, it can be easier on the eyes of users after a long period of time. But even with new evidence that the whole app was going dark, it was clear that significant work remained, with some screens stuck in a halfway state: white text, but also a white background.

With the Dark Mode, essentially all of the White you see in the UI will be turned Black, making for a much darker browsing and viewing experience.
