YouTube is an everyday tool for us and we may have never seen it, but it turns out it has a secret dark mode – and we can activate it too.

Discovered by a Redditor, the dark mode appears to be available on the latest versions of Google Chrome – and once enabled, it seems to automatically apply to to the remainder of the website, including the homepage and the dedicated channel pages.

Here’s how to activate it:

Open the Chrome developer tools tab.
◘ Windows users can do this by pressing F12.
◘ Mac users can do this by pressing Option + Cmd + I.

Select the Console tab.
◘ Once in Console, paste the following text: document.cookie=”VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=fPQ4jCL6EiE”
◘ Hit enter.

Close the developer tools tab and refresh the page.
◘ Click the main settings menu in the top right and find the ‘Dark Mode’ section.
◘ Toggle ‘Dark Mode’ on.

Your are settled. Enjoy the dark mode.
