After a bit of teasing and a roll out to the web, the YouTube for Android app is finally starting to get a Dark Mode. The update is a cloud-side update which means as long as you have the latest version of the Android app on your phone, you will have the update pushed to you behind the scenes and not have to update your app. For those that are curious, the latest build is version 13.28.54.
The YouTube team at Google appears to be slow rolling this update out so not everyone is seeing it just yet, me included. This isn’t uncommon for these cloud-side pushes so if you aren’t seeing it yet, chances are good you will see it today or tomorrow. You’ll know you got the update when you see a pop up in the YouTube for Android app letting you know it is available.
