In this guide, we will be showing you how to use YouTube Dark mode on your Android, iOS, PC or Mac device.
Browsing through YouTube is so much fun as there a lot of videos to be watched from different content creators. Now, watching YouTube videos during the day might not be a problem as the white background might not necessarily affect your eyes but watching it at night with the white background might be idle. Not only YouTube, staring at too much white light at night or in a dark environment might not be the best thing for your eyes.
This is why many apps and sites off a way to switch to a dark or night mode in order to ease the strain on the eyes of their users who use the platform at night or in dark environments. YouTube has done the same by starting with night mode for their desktop (PC and Mac) version of YouTube which was rolled out sometime in 2017. Later, they moved on to iOS which saw the dark mode included in the YouTube app for iOS earlier this year and now Android is getting the same treatment as the feature is set to release in few weeks time.
