Hey everyone. In this video, I wanted to show you how you could turn on the YouTube dark theme like you see here.
So I turn on the dark theme, and this is basically what YouTube looks like on the mobile app.
And then I’ll show you how to turn it on on the desktop, so on the mobile app,
this is what we want to do, so on the very home page of the app. I’m on the home page here.
I’m gonna click my logo right on top
and you want to go to settings, so click the settings, the gear icon here and right there, under YouTube, you should see dark theme.
If I turn it on, I get the dark theme if I turn it off
I get the regular light theme that YouTube originally comes with. This is the dark theme. This has been around for a long time.
But they’ve made a really easy since the 2017 update to make it a dark theme right on this page.
And if you don’t see this option, make sure you have the latest version of the app. This was implemented back in 2017.
So let’s jump on the computer, I want to show you how to do it on the computer.
It’s even easier on a desktop or a laptop.
So on your desktop here, what we want to do is we want to come to our icon again.
So just on any page on YouTube, just click the icon up here.
So this is your user profile, click that and it will give you a drop-down and right here, dark theme off.
If I click it, it will give me this option. It says dark theme. It has the switch here.
On/off, so on kind of looks like this, if I scroll down to my page,
this is the dark theme that I actually prefer sometimes more than the light theme.
So to do that again, dark theme click it and then off or on just like that.
And that will give you the dark theme on YouTube.
Please give this video a thumbs up, so more people could discover this dark theme.
