    What is YouTube black

    YouTube nero (or rather the youtube dark theme) is nothing more than an alternative version to the classic white and red YouTube graphics. This option, available both in the desktop version and in the application for iPhone and iPad, was introduced to make video viewing more comfortable when the user is in a dimly lit room.

    As stated in the YouTube guidelines, dark graphics reduce reflections and allow you to watch videos in their true colors, darkening the light surfaces of the page and thus optimizing visibility at night. Unfortunately, however, for the moment the possibility has not been introduced to change the theme automatically depending on the environment in which the user is, thus forcing a manual change in the evening and during the day.

    Leaving aside these perceptible improvements in particular video viewing conditions, YouTube's dark theme is nothing more than a purely aesthetic introduction which, however, was particularly appreciated by users. In fact, the black theme of the famous video sharing and viewing service was initially released only for the desktop version of YouTube and only later was it also introduced in the YouTube application (at the time of writing this guide only for iPhone / iPad).

    Put YouTube black on your computer

    Put YouTube black on your computer it is a simple procedure that takes a few seconds of time. The dark theme of the famous Google video sharing service can be activated both by users registered on YouTube and by those who do not yet have an account.

    If your intention is to change the YouTube graphics by setting the black theme, connect to the main page of the Google platform and click on the icon of three vertical dots at the top right, then click on the item Dark theme: disabled from the menu that appears and move the lever next to the item Dark theme da OFF a ON.

    If, on the other hand, you are signed in to your Google account, click on yours photo present at the top right (on the icon of thelittle man if you have not customized your account), then select the item Dark theme: disabled and move the toggle next to the option Dark theme da OFF a ON.

    Automatically, the YouTube graphics will turn black, even if not all sections will offer the same theme. In fact, if you log into your channel's Creator Studio or the page to upload a new video, you may still see the white theme. Furthermore, you must know that the YouTube graphics are related to the browser in use: this means that if you want to set the YouTube dark theme on another browser other than the one previously used, you will have to repeat the above.

    To turn off the black theme and return to classic YouTube graphics, click on yours photo top right (on the icon of three dots if you are not logged in to your account), select the option Dark theme: active, move the lever next to the item Dark theme da ON a OFF And that's it.
