By default, the Yahoo Sports App uses a light theme, which features a white background.

If you find that the default display setting is too straining for your eyes, especially when you are trying to use this application in an environment with little to no light, then you can take a look at this tutorial at Overly Technical to see how you can turn on the dark mode or night mode.

What is dark theme or night theme for the Yahoo Sports App?

The dark theme, also known as the night theme, will charge the background of the Yahoo Sports App to black. This will make it easier on your eyes, especially if you are checking for sporting news or scores at night or in a dark room.

The dark or night mode should also save you a little bit of battery life as your smartphone or mobile device won’t need to exert more energy for the screen due to the black background.
