The Material Redesign for YouTube includes a dark mode

A long time ago in a galaxy right here, YouTube began testing a new look, based on material design. Recently, a few of Googe’s web services also got the new look (Google Contacts and Search). Now, it appears that the redesign is rolling out to YouTube as well:

DARK MODE!

The new design also seems to have ditched the old card-based design and settled for a much more refined solid background.

However, even if you’re still seeing the old version of YouTube in your desktop browser, there’s a method of forcing the new UI regardless. Here is how:

Open the Developer Console (usually by pressing F12)

Put in document.cookie=”PREF=f6=4;path=/;domain=.youtube.com”; hit enter and reload the page.

YouTube has been making a ton of improvements since a few months now, mostly to improve the commenting system, video popularity and a lot more. Recently they’ve also decided to get rid of 30-second non-skippable ads by/from 2018.

Tell us what you think about the new design in the comments below!
