YouTube has a new design, a new logo and an updated app

YouTube Officially Announces Its New Look And Several Updated Features For Its Mobile App Here are all the big changes coming to YouTube today

YouTube bundled together a bunch of big changes to its look and feel in a release today.

With YouTube on the verge of celebrating its bar mitzvah, the 12-year-old video site has unveiled a sleek desktop redesign and a bevy of new features for its mobile app. Finally, the area below the player should let you "browse videos in totally new ways" at some point in the future.

Some of the main changes are the way YouTube is now joined up instead of being separated by white and black text colour. If you don't use YouTube Kids then you won't see it in your viewing experience but that is now different for those who use it. Users of the mobile YouTube app will also be able to speed up or slow down the playback of a video with this new update, as they already can on the desktop.

For mobile, YouTube will see a "cleaner" design with a white header (to "let content take the lead") and moved the navigation tabs to the bottom of the app (to be "closer to your thumbs"). Along with the 10 seconds skip gesture that we all are familiar with. Now, several of those tools are available for everyone: YouTube has rolled out its new desktop design for all users and has added several new features to its mobile app.

According to the company, the new logo allows for a more flexible design that works better across a variety of devices, even on the tiniest screens.

"At a Glance" is a new type of post we're introducing on Beautiful Pixels. YouTube is also going beyond the double-tap to fast-forward, and will soon experiment with swiping left and right to switch between videos. Their example here is that this feature will let you watch vertical videos without any black bars on the sides.

A new logo that loses the emphasis on Tube and adds the now-iconic play button.
