How to Enable YouTube's New Dark Mode
If you're not a fan of your screen blasting your eyes with white light, you might like dark modes (the preferred app style of many, including night owls, goths, Sith Lords and Laptop Mag staffers). YouTube is the latest of these apps, and even though Google hasn't rolled it out to everyone yet, you can enable it immediately.
This process used to be a lot more complicated, and required coding and Google Chrome. YouTube seems to have seen the demand for this new feature, and taken steps to simplify it.
Here's how to activate YouTube's Dark Mode:
1. Navigate to https://www.youtube.com/new.
2. Click Try It Now (or Go To YouTube if you see that instead).
3. Click your Profile icon in the top right corner.
4. Click Dark Theme.
11. Click the Dark Theme switch.
You've got YouTube's Dark Mode! Pop some popcorn and enjoy some videos!
