YouTube decided to make a few changes, so the app will suffer a redesign across platform. Therefore, you will soon be able to notice how the desktop and mobile app will sport new features, along with the most easily recognizable upgrade, namely a new logo.
The first thing you are most likely to observe when opening the new YouTube app is the new logo. Google claims this redesign is some sort of a cleaning up, and the new appearance is more suitable for multi-screen. But what should this mean?
The new logo should be more flexible, namely look better on different kinds of screens. This is not only limited to smartphones, desktops, or tablet screens. Also, the new logo is lighter, which makes it more suitable for the mobile version. If you don’t have much space for display, the redesign looks better.
What changes will the YouTube redesign bring?
The desktop version of YouTube received a redesign back in May. However, at the time, this was only a beta version. Now, YouTube took this version and rolled it out for all users. Apart from the dark mode introduced back then, there are several other exciting features.
At the top of the display, in the left corner, you can see a hamburger button. If you click on it, you can hide the left panel. This is great, as it offers you a greater view at your content. The area displaying your recommended videos or what’s new in your subscriptions gets bigger, so you can see more videos listed at a time.
Mobile users shouldn’t get disappointed, as the same redesign came to that version as well. In fact, the mobile version is even more exciting. By swiping left, you can go back to the previous video, and swiping right gets you to the next one in the list. Also, while watching videos full screen, swiping up will bring a series of related videos.
There will be many other exciting changes, such as the ability to watch vertical videos, or Accounts and Library tabs. The update should start rolling out soon, and many of you must have probably noticed the redesign.
