YouTube has a hidden dark theme. This turns the background of the page black (and some parts dark gray) and makes the text lighter. Using the dark theme can be extremely helpful at night to prevent eyestrain.


  1. Enable the experimental interface. Go to and click TRY IT NOW.
  2. Click your user profile picture (if signed in) or the ⋮ symbol if signed out. One of the two controls will be present at the top-right corner of the webpage.
    • The ⋮ symbol is the one on the webpage. Don't confuse it with the identical Google Chrome "Customize and control Google Chrome" button.
  3. Click Dark Theme: Off. It contains a crescent icon.
  4. Enable dark theme. Toggle the slider next to "ACTIVATE DARK THEME".
  5. Finished. The background of YouTube will darken. To turn off dark theme and switch back to the light theme, re-access the setting and toggle off the slider.
