The folks over at The Verge report Google plans to introduce the dark mode to the Android version of YouTube "soon". The company added the feature to the desktop version of YouTube a year ago and has been met with much demand from consumers to implement the same feature in the mobile apps.

Youtube is going dark on iOS and Android with a new update.

Back in January, Mac Rumors reported the initial test of dark mode on iOS after a Reddit user found the feature in his recently updated YouTube app.

YouTube has announced that it's rolling out Dark Mode to its apps for iOS and Android devices.

The second-quarter hiring projection is the lowest among the four North Carolina metropolitan statistical areas surveyed. Net employment is determined by subtracting those who expect to reduce staff from those who plan to increase it.

Our first hint of serious work towards a dark mode for YouTube landed last fall, when we saw signs of a dark theme for the app's video-playback panel. Although there is no way of making the app automatically switching between the dark and light themes depending on the time of the day, the addition of the new dark theme will be welcomed by many.

According to Google, a dark mode was one of the most requested features for its mobile apps. The company did not set a firm date for Android devices to get the new dark theme.

The point of Dark Mode is to make videos easier to watch on YouTube by inverting the main colors, turning white to black and vice versa.
