YouTube Dark Mode Surfaces in Latest Desktop Chrome Browser Update

How to activate YouTube's hidden dark mode on Google Chrome

Reddit discovered a console edit in Chrome 57 for Windows and macOS that enables a toggle switch in settings to flip everything from the red and white you're used to into shades of black and grey. Now you should be able to select a "Dark Mode" from the settings list.

Paste document.cookie="VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=fPQ4jCL6EiE" into the console and press enter.

First spotted by a redditor named _paul-, dark mode is only available on the most recent version of Google Chrome, the Next Web reports. Once that's done, all you'll need to do is reload the page, click your avatar, and dark mode should load up. That, as you've probably guessed from the title, is dark mode - even though YouTube has been around since 2006, there's been no official way to "dim the lights" so you can better focus on the video in front of you.

Pochettino has father-son relationship with Alli

Windows users can do this by pressing Ctrl + Shift + I. Mac users can turn to MacRumors, which has offered simple, step-by-step instructions for Apple computers.

If you've ever sat in the dark with a bright laptop open, you're likely familiar with the headache that habit can induce.

Click on your YouTube profile picture on the top right, you'll now see a Dark Mode option in the dropdown.
