YouTube Dark Mode – Recently, YouTube is trying a new design to get it in line with other Google services that use the Material Design. The material design offers simplicity, consistency, and beauty. To make things even better, the new design is built on a new faster and secure framework called “Polymer.”
As part of the new design language, you can have a new dark YouTube theme. The good thing about the YouTube dark theme is that it turns all the light surfaces of the page dark. Since all the light surfaces are dark, it is very pleasant on your eye and very ideal for night watching. So, if you are dark theme lover, then you should definitely try out the new YouTube dark theme.
