In an era where almost every app is offering a dark mode option, YouTube has also stepped up its game. Long gone are the days when you had to strain your eyes against the glaring white background of YouTube. Now, you can switch between dark and light themes with just a few clicks. This article will guide you through the easy steps to change your YouTube theme to either dark mode or light mode. To see how to change Youtube Theme to dark mode and white mode, check out the video below the article.

First, let’s understand why this feature is gaining popularity. According to an article by Intelicle, many users find the white background of YouTube unbearable, especially after spending long hours on their PC. The dark mode provides a soothing alternative that reduces eye strain and makes for a more comfortable viewing experience.

Changing YouTube Theme on your Device

To start changing your theme on YouTube, navigate to your profile picture. Click on it, and a dropdown menu will appear. From this menu, select ‘Settings’. Within settings, you’ll see several options, but what you’re interested in is under the ‘General’ tab.

Once you’re in the General tab, look for the option labeled ‘Appearance’. Clicking on ‘Appearance’ will present you with three options:

  • Use device theme
  • Dark theme
  • Light theme

The ‘device theme’ option will match your YouTube theme with the current theme on your device. If your phone or computer is set to a dark theme, YouTube will automatically switch to dark mode, and vice versa.

The ‘dark theme’ option will change your YouTube background to black, making it ideal for night-time use or simply as a respite from the usual bright white theme.

The ‘light theme’ option will keep your YouTube background white, maintaining the classic YouTube look that we’re all familiar with.

Choosing between the dark and light themes on YouTube is a matter of personal preference. Some users might find the dark theme more comfortable for their eyes, while others might prefer the traditional white background. Either way, it’s great that YouTube provides this flexibility, allowing you to customize your viewing experience based on your comfort and preference.

Remember, switching between themes is an easy process that you can do as often as you like. So feel free to experiment with both modes to see which one you prefer. Happy viewing! Intrigued to discover fascinating activities you can undertake on YouTube? 🔗 YouTube Topics 🔗
