YouTube joins the dark side with their new theme for Android

YouTube for Android gets dark theme

We had reported a year ago that Google-owned YouTube, the most popular video streaming website, is testing a new "dark mode" feature that is expected to cause less strain to the user's eyes while watching YouTube videos at night time or dimly-lit environments.

In March, YouTube revealed that it was releasing a dark mode for its mobile apps, starting with its iOS version. This dark theme has more of a dark gray tone than a pure black tone, so it is not completely blacked out. Then, of course, there is also the option to turn it off as well.

Zimbabwe election: ZANU-PF wins parliamentary majority, electoral body says
Gunfire was heard downtown throughout the afternoon, including near the ruling party headquarters where protesters had gathered. Zimbabwe's main opposition leader, Nelson Chamisa , casts his vote at a polling station in Harare on Monday.

Once the Dark Mode is enabled, the color of app's UI elements is inverted from white to black (check image above). YouTube for Android was recently improved with the addition of another useful feature called Incognito mode. Similarly, iOS users can activate the feature by tapping their profile icon and then heading into settings where they can see a "Dark Theme" toggle. For example, viewing YouTube in a room with dim light does not leave any strain on your eye. The video player itself also adopts a dark theme. Reports have confirmed the pitfall of using apps with white background in the low light conditions.

It is only a matter of time before users worldwide would be able to access this new option.

The complaint also aimed at the company's failure to report falling operating margins and the significant decline in active users. Facebook's decline significantly outpaced the $91 billion that Intel lost in September of 2000, during the original dot-com bust.

You would think that being owned by Google means that YouTube would prioritize adding features on Google's platforms.

The lucky user said he simply went to bed and, on waking up, the YouTube app has changed.
