(2022) How to Turn On or Off YouTube Dark Mode (iPhone, PC, and Android)

Let’s see how to do this task. I use Google Pixel 4a (Android 12), iPhone (iOS 15.2), and Windows 11 PC.

How to Turn On or Off YouTube Dark Mode (PC)

Here, I’m using the Chrome browser on Windows 11 PC. Let’s see the steps.

Log in to your YouTube account.

Click on your profile picture at the top right.

Note: You can activate or deactivate dark mode without logging into your account. For that, visit YouTube and click on the three vertical dots at the top right. Then follow the steps below.

Hit “Appearance: current theme.” In the “current theme” place, you can see the theme in which YouTube is right now.

Now you can see the following:

  • Use device theme – to set the device’s dark mode state for YouTube.
  • Light theme – to disable dark mode.
  • Dark theme – to activate dark mode.

Pick the one you prefer, and that’s it.
