YouTube is adding a new dark theme to its mobile apps, starting with iOS today. To activate the new theme, simply touch the icon of the account, go to the settings, select "dark theme" and enjoy the new appearance.
YouTube previously added a dark mode to its desktop site last year, and the company says it has since become one of the most requested features for its mobile applications. As the name implies, the dark theme reverses some colors in the YouTube user interface, exchanging the white background of the standard theme for a more cinematic and off-kilter style.
The dark theme should be extended to iOS users today. An Android version of the update is "coming soon".
