YouTube Dark Mode relased for Android
Back in March, Google announced that the YouTube mobile app
for Android and iOS would get a dark mode. That dark theme rolled out for iOS
users almost immediately but has taken months to reach the Android version.
Dark mode turns the interface all black and reduces strain on the eyes while navigating the app, especially at night. The dark mode gives a more immersive experience. It also helps save battery life on mobile devices. Phones with OLED panels will, of course, deliver deeper blacks in videos.
The new experience is particularly noticeable on the video page, because the player itself is black before the video actually loads, ensuring a smoother, less jarring experience overall. It’s also advantageous for those phones with the pesky ‘notch’ displays, as it makes that black cut-out at the top of the display a little less prominent.(Indebted to various sources)
