At long last, YouTube for iPhone and iPad has gained a new Dark theme, rolling out today.

The Verge reports that both iOS and Android editions of the app will be picking up the new user interface theme but iOS will be getting it first, followed by Android soon.

The iPhone and iPad edition of the mobile YouTube app will be introducing the new Dark theme later today so stay tuned to iDownloadBlog as we’re going to refresh this article as soon as Google’s update goes live.

TUTORIAL: How to enable Dark theme in YouTube for iOS

Google was spotted testing the Dark theme with a subset of users of the app as far back as late last year. With an optionally darkened interface, this new user interface theme is perfectly suitable for late-night video streaming and should look exceptionally great on your iPhone X (and even help save the battery power due to the way OLED technology works).

To enable the new Dark theme in YouTube for iOS, tap your account icon within the app, then choose Settings from the menu and select the new Dark Theme option to have most of the white background swapped with a black, more cinematic style.

This mode will also invert many of the interface colors.

Google also brought a dark theme to YouTube’s web interface last year.

To enable it, sign in with your credentials at youtube.com. Next, click your profile picture in the upper-right corner and select the Dark Theme option from the popup menu.

YouTube for iOS is a free download from App Store.
