Some people also believe that black or darker interfaces save battery, but the fact isn't entirely accurate.

In March, YouTube revealed that it was releasing a dark mode for its mobile apps, starting with its iOS version.

The process to turn dark mode on and off is similar in laptop and desktop devices.

Said spotting was done by 9to5Google, with the theme seemingly being prioritised for phones and tablets sporting the Google-powered Android (which owns YouTube).

You can of course manually enable the dark theme and skip the rollout entirely providing you have root access.

From there, the usual white background that appears in the YouTube app will change to dark grey. Comment us below your reaction on this new feature and stay tuned with TechnoCodex for more updates.

Similarly iOS users could take advantage of dark mode by also clicking on their profile within the app, then settings before switching the toggle for the new theme on. It can help focus your eyes on the actual content, especially at night when the light from a screen might be the only light in a room. Dark mode is really one of those features you didn't know you wanted until you use it.

The new option in the settings menu under the general section can just as easily be toggled off back to disable the dark theme and revert to the usual lighter colors.

Google regularly updates its video streaming service. For reference, on iOS devices you can find it under Settings Dark theme. Others have reported the feature in their YouTube app but it hasn't been rolled out to everyone.
