So, Before I get on with the steps on how to enable youtube dark theme on desktop I need to talk a little. Youtube has been around for a while putting smiles on the faces of its users. Personally, I don’t think I can go a day without streaming a game walkthrough video or a video on singing or piano lessons. Youtube is fun and also addictive.

The creators of youtube “Google” decided to spice up the platform by adding a feature that enables users to change the theme from the default (white theme) to another theme with a completely different and cool look (Dark theme). Dark theme turns the light surfaces of the page dark, creating an experience ideal for night. You should try it out! Trust me when I say you would love this theme. Everybody I know uses the default white theme which at some point has become boring. (I’m probably saying this because I have literally fallen in love with the “dark theme”.)
