After introducing a dark theme for YouTube on the web, Google is bringing a dark theme for YouTube to mobile devices.

YouTube announced on Tuesday that its mobile app is getting a dark mode, just like its desktop site.

The feature debuted on the YouTube desktop client previous year. For now, the feature's only available on iOS, but Google says it's coming to Android soon. If any app actually needed a dark mode, it might be the YouTube app, which can be blindingly bright in a dark room.

We spotted YouTube making progress in that direction early this year, as settings for a dark mode started to include more and more of the app's UI elements.

Speaker Mahajan tried to take up the Question Hour, but in the din, the House was soon adjourned. Mr Naidu also repeated his request to members not to display placards inside the House.

Google also teased the feature as recently as January, when the dark mode was found within the app's code.

Dark mode has a few advantages. "Dark theme", and letting you toggle it on right away.

If you're a regular YouTube viewer, you've probably already heard of the platform's "Dark Mode" functionality. It's gentler on the eyes, which could encourage users to spend more time on YouTube's mobile app and possibly let them sleep easier. Now, we know that it is on iOS and that it will soon be debuting on Android. The app will automatically switch to a darker hue, with no app restart necessary for the change to go into effect.
