The Android rollout follows YouTube’s dark mode coming to desktop last year and iOS in March.

YouTube for Android finally rolled out a dark mode over the weekend, months after it came to iOS.

The dimmer display option — which offers an easier viewing experience in low-light conditions — is being automatically applied as it arrives on Android devices, according to 9to5google.

It can be turned on and off manually through a toggle in the Settings menu, under General. For more details on dark mode, check out our guide.

The Android rollout is still happening, but is spreading widely enough that it’s unlikely to be a test.

Google didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

YouTube’s dark mode came to iOS devices in March, after the company introduced the theme to its desktop interface last year.  Prior to that, you need to turn on a hidden developer mode to go dark.
