Android Users To Get YouTube\'s Dark Mode Feature

The “Dark Mode,” which converts Youtube’s content to a dark background on white text is finally arriving on Android platform. The feature was first rolled out for desktop last year, and it was followed by iOS in March this year. Since then, the feature was due for the Android platform.

The feature was tossed up yesterday, and soon every user will be granted the ease of new feature in the coming days or weeks. As stated by Youtube, the Dark Mode feature was very much in demand from the users’ and by taking note of it, Youtube worked out this feature. The Dark Mode feature is slated to be rolled on the Android app.

When the Dark Mode gets enabled on the Android device, the user will get the notification with a dialog box offering to disable the feature. The user can further toggle with the feature into the app’s settings menu to turn it off, if not required.

To toggle the option, follow these steps:

  • Tap on the avatar in the top right corner
  • Tick Settings
  • Select General
  • Go to the Dark Theme item near the top of the menu

The toggle function is quite similar to that for desktops and laptops. As in desktop, you can do it by selecting the account icon, then tapping the Dark theme option just above the Settings option. From there, you can turn it off or on.

The feature is must-have to surf in the low light conditions or during the night time, as it saves the eyes from unwanted exposure of white light. Reports have confirmed the pitfall of using apps with white background in the low light conditions. It makes you blink less and ultimately drying your eyes, which can sometimes lead to a severe headache.

Interestingly, before rolling the feature for the Android users, the Google quashed the release of Dark Mode feature on the Android platform. It’s undoubtedly a welcome move by YouTube for its Android users.
