How to Enable Dark Mode on YouTube

​Turning YouTube dark mode on is a simple task, and here’s how you can do that on PC, Android, and iPhone:


Note: Here, I’m using the Chrome web browser in Windows 10 PC.

Sign into your YouTube account. Click on your profile picture at the top right of the screen.

Note: You can activate dark mode even without signing into your account. After you visit YouTube, click on three vertical dots. Now, follow the below steps.

You can see “Dark theme: Off.” Click on it.

Note: Besides the “Dark theme:” you can see the status of the dark mode. The dark theme is disabled, and that’s why you see “Off.”

Enable toggle switch beside “Dark Theme.”


  • For each browser, you’ve to enable dark mode separately.
  • To turn off the dark theme on YouTube, follow the above steps but disable instead of enabling.


Launch the YouTube app. Hit the profile picture at the top right > Settings. Tap “General,” which you can find above “Autoplay.”

Tap “Appearance.” In the pop-up, you can see three options:

  • Use device theme – Set your system-wide theme as the YouTube theme. In other words, if your device is in dark mode, then YouTube too will be in dark mode.
  • Light theme – Disable dark mode.
  • Dark theme – Turn on dark mode.

Pick the one you prefer (except “Light theme”).


Open the YouTube app. Hit profile picture at the top right > Settings. Enable “Dark theme.”

Note: If you want to disable the dark theme, then follow the above steps but instead of enabling, disable.
