    I'm still trying to understand why search and view history is to be cleared within the app itself vs in the main iOS settings location. I'm not even signed into nor ever have to the youtube app. I don't use gmail either and never signed into iOS using that account, so why am I being tracked? Yeah dark mode.

    Apple take this as a hint and offer iOS real dark mode for iPhone X at the very least.

    I just got it but it wasn't a software update. If you close the app (make sure it's closed and not open in the background) then relaunch and it will ask you do you want to turn on dark mode? YES!!

    Question.. I have my app updated to version 13.08, being an update released a week ago. And today I opened my app after reading this article, and I got a pop “do you want to check out the new dark theme”... and it got me thinking, how did google add a new feature to the app without an update? Surely it’s not an update like the map etc, where it’s server side. This is a UI feature, and how can it get updated without the app being updated through the App Store?

    It's really inconsistent.. It goes back to being white all the time so I have to re-enable the feature all the time. Really annoying.

    Yeah it makes you wonder if they have control of your phone without you knowing in the background.

    YouTube's Dark Mode is the laziest I've seen. Twitter looks gorgeous in dark mode. They didn't just change the white to black and the text from black to white like YouTube, the interface is wholly different and complements the service.

    Can I finally delete my browsing history and other privacy-related data in the app? This is what kept me from using the YouTube app in the past.

    Yes in setting you can clear your watched history and below that is another option to clear your search history.
