Last year YouTube released a “Dark Mode” feature for its desktop application. As a regular YouTube user, you’d probably know about the YouTube dark mode feature and its functionality. However, for the new and not-so-techy users this feature is something to talk about. The YouTube Dark Mode feature was introduced in 2017 for a better user-experience. However, users could only use the dark mode feature in desktop version which in itself was quite a put-off. Let’s explain this feature briefly for all our “unaware” YouTube users.
What exactly is YouTube Dark Mode Feature?
A Dark Mode is an amazing feature that actually flips your YouTube’s white screen to a black and grey shady tone. I personally believe that allowing users to change their profile themes is a brilliant idea. Turning your background black while watching videos actually help you focus on the video screen. That too without bursting your eyes with irritating white light.
Dark Mode feature finally rolling out for iOS devices
Recently, YouTube finally decided to roll out this feature to mobile devices – initially starting off with iOS devices. The feature is currently applicable on all iOS devices where users can switch from normal mode to dark mode – you can also call it night mode. Twitter also launched a similar feature which allow the users to switch to darker tones/themes on app and desktop version. The dark mode is a win-win feature for YouTube as it is much easier on eyes and reduce eye-strain.
YouTube has been working on this feature from quite a well know. The Dark Mode feature for mobile devices are specifically designed for late-night viewers. Considering the fact, that the app’s ordinary white colors are too bright and eye-straining for night browsing.
YouTube is a world’s largest and most used online video streaming channel. Having this feature introduced in mobile devices can play a major role for users. What are your thoughts on this feature?
Ping: Android users would have to wait a little longer to experience the Dark Mode feature! YouTube reportedly said that the Dark Mode feature will “soon” be announced for Android users but no confirmed date has been released yet.
