  • YouTube Officially Announces Its New Look And Several Updated Features For Its Mobile App

Along with the revamped logo, Google is now rolling out new design features that were previously available to a limited number of users for testing purposes.

First and foremost, the YouTube desktop site and mobile app are being overhauled with the Material Design look that now pervades much of Google's software lineup, including Android and Search. Notably, the American media-giant also added, that they'll bring a new way that could magically warp the player according to the videos you're watching. As the video above demonstrates, users can easily toggle between the ordinary bright white view and a Dark Theme that is similar to Twitter's Night Mode.

Quite a few changes, to say the least. As you can see, these below-attached pics describe the different logos of YouTube.

While the desktop already lets you speed up or slow down playback, YouTube is also rolling out that same capability to mobile.

YouTube today introduced a new logo and announced a host of improvements to its service across mobile and web platforms - some of which launch today, while others are coming soon.

The app itself is featuring a new design with the navigation tabs being moved to the bottom of the screen. Along with the 10 seconds skip gesture that we all are familiar with.

"Designed for our multi-screen world, the updated logo combines a cleaned up version of the YouTube wordmark and icon, creating a more flexible design that works better across a variety of devices, even on the tiniest screens", Mohan explained. YouTube is also going beyond the double-tap to fast-forward, and will soon experiment with swiping left and right to switch between videos. This means you'll no longer get black bars at the side of vertical videos. So, first thing's first: the new logo.
