YouTube just got a new logo, design and features
Over the past several months, the company has been testing a series of new features for its mobile and desktop experiences, and today they are all launching alongside a refreshed logo.
YouTube’s logo is pretty iconic, so any change to it is a big deal. Today’s refresh is still just as recognizable, but with a more minimal take on the design. The “play button” separates from the text , leaving YouTube’s name off to the side. The red color has also been brightened a bit.
Furthermore, YouTube has refreshed both its desktop and mobile experiences with a new look and new features too. On the desktop, there’s a clear Material Design for the entire site, with long awaited features like a dark mode. If that sounds familiar, it should be considering that YouTube originally introduced it a couple of months ago in testing. From what we can tell, nothing has changed since that introduction aside from the new logo up top.
Other changes include features like tap 👆🏼 to skip, speed controls, and the app's new ability to shape the video player to fit the content on the screen.
If you come across a video shot in the vertical orientation, YouTube will now shape the player so that video takes up more of your phone's screen rather than placing black bars around the video (no one should take this as a reason to shoot vertical videos though).
The YouTube app will also be updated to remove the red accents in exchange for white, something we, again, saw in testing a while back.
