There is a light and dark theme available for YouTube. Which one are you using and why?

I always have been using the light theme but recently I switched to the dark one and I think it's better for me especially in the night.

Dark theme!! I've kind of gotten used to dark themes on my phone (AMOLED means more black on the screen helps conserve battery power because the display doesn't have to display the black) so I try to get the dark theme on my phone apps whenever I can. And now I just like that style better. I feel like that red/black contrast is more aesthetically pleasing than red/white (youtube's colors).

I remember reading about the dark theme when it came out, but forgot about it until this thread. I've been using the dark theme natively on my phone, but have been using the light theme on desktop. However, now that I'm making a conscientious effort about it, I've swapped over to the dark theme and after a second or two of adjusting, it makes a big different on the positive side.

Well, for those interested, the stats say half of people like light themes. Around 40 percent like either light or dark and 20 percent like only dark themes. Anyway, not sure about the 2nd sentence as far as exact percentage, but something around that.

You have just saved my life.
I love the dark themes. It fits better in my eyes. Right now I use twitter/telegram/skype in dark theme. I did not know YouTube had one, so now in both website and my iPhone app, I have dark theme.
I really hope Whatsapp/FB/IG releases some dark theme, please!
