YouTube dark theme now available for some on Android

YouTube had announced this past March that a dark mode option was coming to both Android and iOS after it first debuted on the Material Design-revamped version on the web. The Dark Theme toggle will be under the Digital Wellbeing section, below the "Remind me to take a break" feature. Also, anything previously white will be converted into the dark theme, including search pages, backgrounds, tabs, and even the minimized video player.

9to5Google reports that the feature began rolling out yesterday, notifying users with a prompt.

If you own an Android device and are not yet seeing the option, you can check if it is available by going into Settings General. This way, the initial loading experience is now less jarring to see.

The lucky user said he simply went to bed and, on waking up, the YouTube app has changed.

Mugabe says he will not vote for successor Mnangagwa
We told them we don't have money to pay you fully but we would each month pay your workers and that's what we are able to do. In a surprise move, Mr Mugabe has said he hopes his former allies in the military government will lose the election.

When the feature has fully rolled out, the option can be turned on and off by the user.

If you can't wait for YouTube to flip the switch, you can try this method detailed over on XDA Developers Forum to enable the feature - but you'll need root access to get it to work.

The dark mode appears to be quite nice for those who enjoy a darker tone to their apps, and as the setting suggest it extends to the entire app rather than just parts. Whether that happened automatically or he forgot to mention that it needed to be enabled first, we'll never know.
