Dark Mode is Rolling Out on YouTube App for Android

YouTube for Android gets dark theme

YouTube for Android gets dark theme

The Android rollout follows YouTube's dark mode coming to desktop a year ago and iOS in March.

The feature turns the interface all black and also makes it easier on the eyes to navigate through the platform. The feature was first added to the web version a year ago. The mobile dark theme is just like its web version, it uses black and dark shades of gray for the app's background. At long last, it appears that YouTube's dark mode is finally rolling out for Android.

You can also enable or disable the mode in the "General" section of the app's settings by toggling the aptly-titled "dark theme" option. For example, viewing YouTube in a room with dim light does not leave any strain on your eye.

Palestinian teen killed at scene after stabbing Israelis in settlement
Some 300 Palestinians - a lot of them assailants, Israel says - have also been killed in that period, according to news agencies. On Thursday, three people were stabbed, including one fatally, by a 17-year-old Palestinian in the settlement of Adam.

This dark theme appears to be on a staged rollout, and should hopefully roll out to all Android users eventually. Underneath Digital Wellbeing's "Remind me to take a break" feature, users can locate a "Dark Theme" button, which they can manually switch on and off. "We quickly concluded that the way most people would expect themes to work and the way Dark Mode works were fundamentally different".

YouTube has announced that its player on desktop will now automatically adapt to a video's aspect ratio and different screen ... It's not been confirmed how soon this feature will become a permanent fixture but it may be some time before this feature is released for all. With this being accomplished, YouTube service features would finally be uniform throughout all operating systems.
