This update has been in development for more than six months. After making ‘dark mode’ available on iOS back in March, YouTube is now launching the new feature on Android, too.
Dark mode has been in the making for more than a year altogether. It is designed using Google’s Material Design “to deliver a beautiful, delightful and intuitive user experience” that follows three main principles: Simplicity, consistency and beauty.
The ‘Dark Mode’ has some apparent upsides. It’s great for offering a more cinematic user experience, as well as cutting down the glare from light reflection on the screen.
Although the feature has not received broad release, yet, some users have spotted it on their settings. You can look for the ‘Dark Mode’ on your device and check whether it’s available, by looking for Dark Mode in Settings > General.
YouTube’s app isn’t the only one to offer a “dark mode.” Twitter and Reddit do too, as well as a host of other apps.
