For the past year or so, Google has stepped up its design game. After progressing from a regular video platform to a live streaming service that includes a social network, YouTube is now offering a new User Interface for its users.
Recently Google changed the look of Gmail by adopting a sleek “material design,” and now Google is ready to change YouTube for good.
Yesterday, YouTube introduced a new look that will give you a whole new feel with two color themes. This new YouTube design follows following three simple principals of material design.
- Simplicity – With a neat look, that removes the front page advertisement banner
- Consistency – The new design is aligned across Google platforms, including the YouTube mobile app.
- Beauty – Users will get two color options to change.
Last year, YouTube launched a new look only for a small base of software developers to clear some bugs and operational glitches. So, functionally, the new YouTube redesign works exactly like regular YouTube.com, but this clean look is way different than what they projected a year ago.
You can try the new design early right here: youtube.com/new.
