Google is working on giving YouTube a new look, here’s what may change


From time to time, Google keeps making certain changes to give a new look and feel to its app and services. Google’s popular app Gmail got a makeover recently with certain new features being added. And it looks like another of Google’s popular app may get a new look. This time it is YouTube’s video page to get a sort of a makeover. According to a report by 9to5Google, the changes are being tested on both mobile and desktop versions of YouTube.


What are the changes you will soon see on YouTube?

As per the report, the buttons that are visible on the page will now get a pill-shaped design. Buttons like Share, Download among others will now have a pill-shaped design.
Furthermore, on the mobile version of YouTube, the carousel will be underneath channel details. It will have details and information that will appear after the video title, views count and published date. YouTube will also make the top comment appear more prominent.
On the desktop, the video description will get something called the “visual call out”, as per the report. The idea is to benefit Creators from the visual call-out, which will make the description pop out more than earlier.
It’s not clear when the suggested changes will roll out for users as they still seem to be in the testing phase. However, they are expected to be rolled out to beta users first and then roll out to all users.
