The New YouTube Design

recent Review showcase

YouTube has been testing a new design for a couple of years now for a limited set of testers who were able to opt-in when it started. Today, some brand accounts were automatically migrated to the new YouTube layout which comes with a dark theme.

The roll-out seems to be available for brand accounts only at this time as personal accounts has no way to switch over unless you opted-in to the closed beta test.

Theme feature

The new YouTube has an option to switch to a dark theme. This is a very much welcome feature as it is easy to the eyes especially if you prefer to watch during the night. The only catch, the dark theme doesn’t apply to other sections of YouTube, for example, when you go to your Settings, it is still using the old white-only design.

Easy account switching

Another good feature that comes with the new design is the ability to switch between your personal and brand accounts. In the old design, one has to have loads of patience and take extra effort to switch as the list does not load properly most of the time. In the new design, switching is but a click away!

New YouTube services menu

YouTube has many special services like YouTube Gaming, YouTube Kids, and YouTube Music. In the old design, there are no obvious links to these services unless you know that these exists. In the new design, it is easy to discover the links thanks to the new YouTube services menu — similar to the Google services menu.

The rest are pretty much the same. Perhaps there will be additional features as they continue to improve the new design. Although I have no idea what else to add in terms of features if one’s purpose is simply to browser, watch, and listen. However, what I want to see is consistency for the Dark Theme feature.

Here are the rest of the screenshots I took if you have no access to the new YouTube layout yet. Oh, if you noticed there are no advertisements, it is because I am currently subscribed to Google Music which comes with a free YouTube Red subscription.
