Youtube has a dark mode <3

Youtube Dark Mode Just discovered that one can enable dark mode on Youtube

I've tried it in Chrome, but it maybe works also in other browsers though. Here how you can try it out:

  1. Go to Youtube
  2. Open Console and enter: document.cookie="VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=fPQ4jCL6EiE"
  3. Refresh
  4. You'll see dark mode option either in the "..." menu or when tapping on your profile picture Youtube Dark Mode

Seems like a cool feature for people spending a lot of time watching stuff up there. Also, the video is full width by default, which seems so natural to me since I always enable this either way.

Pretty neat right?
