Image from store YouTube Dark Theme
Description from store "Dark Theme for YouTube" extension converts YouTube theme to a highly customizable dark charcoal/blue theme. This extension is built on top of the default YouTube theme (native dark theme) so it is very light-weighted compare to using themes injected by Stylish or Stylus extensions. Features: Turn on and off from the action button to switch between light and dark themes Accepts scheduling to turn on only on the specified period Customize default color scheme Inject custom CSS to alter the default theme (change font-size or font-family for instance) How does this extension work? This extension alters a cookie globally to turn the dark theme on and off. It also injects a lite script to the YouTube pages to alter the color scheme of the root element. In oppose to the other similar extensions, there is no resetting of the default theme or inverting the white theme with an inversion filter. Both of these methods are computationally inefficient. Instead, this extension asks YouTube to turn the native dark theme and only alter the global CSS variables to alter the colors. Note that this method only works if the product supports native coloring. Some Google products do not yet support this feature. Privacy Policy: This extension does not send or receive any data to any server whatsoever. Bug Report: Please either use the commenting section of the FAQs page or the GitHub page for bug reporting. Change Log: 0.2.0 Use the built-in dark theme (Material Design only)

  • (2023-01-31) Masked Guy: The background color setting in the options is broken, it only changes the mic button (next to search bar) but does not change the background. I can't give this extension more than 3 stars until this bug gets fixed.
  • (2022-11-14) MILAGRO LUJAN ECHAVARRIA: Mmmmm de dudosa prosedencia no me deja colocar un tema en una aplicacion y segundo en ves de hacer tanto espamento x que no mejor actualizar las aplicaciones de sitios web que trae el celular con la obcion de temas y que traiga la obcion de personalisar con fotos de galeria y colores hubiera sigo mejor esa idea en ves de estar descargando aplicaciones que no sirven ya no adtos para celulares androi es una pena ☹️🤨
  • (2022-10-29) Ashelia Dalmasca: Youtube's built in dark mode suddenly stopped working even with Chrome being updated and even the appearance settings disappeared from the menu so I needed a fix and only this one WORKED for me! THANK YOU!
  • (2022-08-25) Evan Moreno: Looks good when it wants to work but it decided it wants to be off by default, meaning I have to click the extension itself in the extensions menu every time I want youtube to be dark mode. If it didn't do this it'd be great but it's basically useless as an extension to have youtube be dark by default
  • (2022-08-21) Ross Valencia: muy bueno, lo recomiendo completamente.

  • (2022-03-05) Jakub Zieliński: Was working flawlessly since I installed it, until today. Now it just doesn't work at all no matter what I do. Perhaps it got broken by a youtube update?

  • (2020-02-23) Digital Dark: Единственное адекватно работающее расширение для темной темы Ютуба. Автору респект!
  • (2020-01-02) Key West Bar Card: Overall it's great. Other dark themes for YouTube will have white area or do not look natural. This is the most naturally looking one. Regular YouTube now looks fake to me. I've been using this for a year. Sometimes you have to manually turn it on again, but it easy and not a big deal for the quality this extension provides.
  • (2019-12-07) Eduardo Barbosa: funciona, muito bom
  • (2019-10-19) Jakob Weigert: Good but automated schedule does not work (YouTube Dark Theme). Does not automatically turn on/off although option is enabled.
  • (2019-09-20) carlo: Nice
  • (2019-08-31) Вкуснейший Борщ: Thanks a lot guys! Keep on making such apps!
  • (2019-07-31) Joander Vieira Cândido: Perfect !
  • (2019-06-27) Ahmed: Eines der besten Dark Themes für YouTube meiner Meinung nach. Werde es auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen
