You can access the dark mode option of Youtube, one of the most popular content platforms in the world, in both Android and iOS, as well as in Youtube mobile and web applications. However, enabling the dark mode option is quite simple.
Why use dark mode?
Contrast on a bright screen can greatly tire the eyes and cause discomfort. The dark mode in most applications is primarily designed to solve this contrast problem. Dark mode improves the viewing experience. It also saves a lot of battery power. Dark mode is especially suitable for videos that load in low resolution and do not look very good when viewed in full-screen mode.
To enable dark mode on YouTube, all you have to do is follow a few simple steps described below, depending on your device.
