The dark theme will be darker, and it will also interact with the video content a little bit, and the video will be able to be further zoomed.

The smudge effect, in addition to the like/dislike, share and other buttons on YouTube, will be redesigned, and the subscription button will also be changed from red to white for a long time, while still maintaining high contrast, reducing visual interference.
