YouTube’s Dark Mode Reaches Android
YouTube began offering a dark mode to web users last year and iOS users in March. Now, the dark mode is rolling out to Android devices. People who update to the latest version of YouTube can enable the dark mode under Settings > General. The dark mode replaces the white background with a dark gray background, which can be easier on the eyes at night. YouTube also recently began to support vertical videos in their native orientation on the web version of YouTube. This means videos that are shot vertically will fill a greater percentage of the screen on web browsers without black bars running down the sides.
