Oh, Dark Mode for YouTube Android App is Coming Soon

YouTube is finally getting a dark mode on Android and iOS

Unfortunately for fans of YouTube's mobile app, the feature was initially only available to desktop users. To access it, you simply head to your account icon, hitting settings, and look for a setting called "Dark theme". From there, you'll notice the background of the app darkens to a deep gray color. It certainly is freaky that iOS is getting the dark theme before Android, given that YouTube and Android are both developed by Google.

Google announced that a dark mode for YouTube is finally coming to Android and iOS.

We spotted YouTube making progress in that direction early this year, as settings for a dark mode started to include more and more of the app's UI elements.

So when will those last details be ironed out and YouTube dark mode for Android ready for all to enjoy?


Dark themes on mobile have become more popular in recent times with services like Twitter, Reddit and Telegram embracing the dark theme.

Google also teased the feature as recently as January, when the dark mode was found within the app's code. Regardless, we'll be letting you know the moment we catch wind of it going live.

YouTube looks much better with the dark theme, and the viewing experience is definitely superior.

The update is rolling out to iOS users today and should arrive soon for Android users.
