Well, guess what? Android users finally have access to it as well, and can join the dark side. The dark theme comes with a toggle that allows you to switch it off.

Channels still retain their colorful app bars, while the biggest impact of the dark theme is on the video page - where the video player is black before it fully loads.

The "Dark Mode", which converts Youtube's content to a dark background on white text is finally arriving on Android platform.

The feature started rolling out last night when the "Dark theme" was automatically applied to their YouTube app, with a pop-up at the bottom of the screen highlighting the new feature. The feature is already available for desktop users.

But while iOS users got to take advantage of the new option relatively fast, those on Android were left waiting. The user can further toggle with the feature into the app's settings menu to turn it off, if not required. For example, viewing YouTube in a room with dim light does not leave any strain on your eye. Dark mode is really one of those features you didn't know you wanted until you use it. It is worth noting that such changes have previously received the web-version of the video, and then the developers have updated the app for iOS. It [Dark Theme] turns your background dark, and enriches your YouTube experience. The compact, minimized video player and all tabs also get this same treatment. "We quickly concluded that the way most people would expect themes to work and the way Dark Mode works were fundamentally different".
