YouTube Has A New Dark Mode: Here's How To Get It

The new Dark Mode changes the classic white and red theme of YouTube to black, and also makes some slight changes to the interface.

As discovered by one resourceful Redditor, the secret mode appears to be available exclusively on the latest reiteration of Chrome (version 57 and above) - and once enabled, it seems to automatically apply to to the remainder of the website, including the homepage and the dedicated channel pages.

Williams shared his excitement about a hidden dark mode on his Twitter account, sharing a browser screenshot that shows YouTube with a fully functional dark mode running. First, update Chrome; you'll need 57, the most recent version.

Refresh the page, if the new layout is enabled, go to your avatar, and from the menu there should be a dark mode toggle. While you can't get this on mobile yet, here's how you activate Dark Mode fin Chrome. Just a little heads-up: YouTube might look slightly different - though still in white.
