Google is introducing a new dark mode to the YouTube app for iOS. The new “dark theme” can be activated by going to the Settings menu from under the account option.
The dark theme essentially inverts the white UI elements to black thereby making it more immersive. YouTube had first added a dark mode to its website last year after which it quickly became the most commonly requested feature for its mobile app. Given the popularity of dark theme in apps among power users, it is nice to see Google finally getting around to adding a dark theme to the app.
For now, the YouTube app for iOS is being updated with the dark theme. An update to the Android app will also be rolled out in the coming weeks.
Now, only if Apple also gets around to adding a dark mode in iOS 12.
