Youtube gets a New Look
The search giant Google officially rolled out the new design interface to Youtube desktop version also in the mobile version. And new brand logo for Youtube. The design change appeared on the beta version in a few months ago. And now, Google released it for everyone. In the new look, they applied the material design so it looks great, makes the good user interface and it is a bit more colorful than the old design. The new desktop design is Dark Theme, which turns the background dark while you watch for a more cinematic look.
The major change is coming up in the new YouTube update is the change in their brand logo. When we see the logo we did not identify a huge change in the logo, but they modified it and made it more attractive than the old logo. So we can see that Youtube discarded the whole old design including the logo. The search giant says, “The bright red cherry on top of this update sundae is a refreshed YouTube Logo and YouTube Icon”.
Let’s see what changes are effected in Youtube Mobile App (Source: Youtube official Blog)
Clean new design: We’ve made the header white to let content take the lead and moved the navigation tabs to the bottom of the app so they’re closer to your thumbs. We also added new Library and Account tabs that give you easy access to what you’re looking for.
Videos that move with you: One of the things we’re working on is bringing gestures to YouTube. Earlier this year, we introduced a gesture that allows you to double tap on the left or right side of a video to fast forward or rewind 10 seconds. Give it a try! We already see billions of double taps per day. And I wanted to give you a sneak peek at another gesture I am really excited about. In the coming months, we’ll experiment with a feature that lets you jump between videos with a simple swipe of your hand: just swipe left to watch a previous video or swipe right to watch the next one.
Watch at your own pace: Users love that they are able to speed up and slow down the playback of a video on the desktop, and we’re excited to bring this feature to the mobile app today so you can enjoy videos at whatever speed you prefer.
Adapt to any video, beautifully: We’ve also been experimenting with new ways to display all videos in the best possible way. Soon, the YouTube player will seamlessly change shape to match the video format you’re watching, such as vertical, square or horizontal. That means you’ll always get the best viewing experience automatically – including vertical videos with no black bars on the sides.
Browse and discover while you watch: We recently added a feature that lets you view a row of suggested videos while you’re watching in full screen. We’re also working on transforming the area below the player so you can browse videos in totally new ways.
