Youtube new interface will be introduced this March of 2020. This move comes after three year of launching current Youtube desktop theme in 2017. Other notable changes to the interface include a “clean” material design, and features like dark mode.
Google’s original announcement:
“Our new look applies Material Design to YouTube and delivers a fresh, simple and intuitive user experience that lets content shine – because there’s nothing more important than the creators and videos we all love to watch. My favorite feature of this new desktop design is Dark Theme, which turns the background dark while you watch for a more cinematic look.”
You’ll see the new Logo and Icon roll out across mobile and desktop today, and across all our other apps and services soon.
