Turning on YouTube's dark theme on mobile

The YouTube app for smartphones has finally won a dark theme. The feature, which was exclusive to the web version, for computers, is initially available for iPhone users (iOS) and should reach Android in the coming weeks. The dark mode is useful for watching videos more comfortably at night, without blurring the eyes with the bright white background of the traditional cell phone screen. According to Google, on Android, when the feature is released, the way to activate it will be the same. Check out the next step in step-by-step how to use the dark theme of the YouTube app on your phone.
