The Night mode feature for smartphones will be available in settings menu which you need to activate manually. The current white clear theme remains the platform standard in mobile apps for Android and iOS.
If you don’t know much about the Night mode, let me tell you in desktop browsers, YouTube already has a night mode, which can be activated in the user settings menu. In Night mode, the entire interface of the Youtube changes to a black color and the black letters in white.
Right now, Google just confirmed that it has begun releasing the Youtube Night Mode feature for Apple’s iOS operating system. If you are the Android user, then you need to wait for few more days to avail the same feature.
Looking at the fact that people love to watch YouTube videos at night, the feature can make things a bit easier on the eyes when you’re staring at a screen for a long period of time. Additionally, getting a dark theme can help you to better focus on the content, not the controls.
