YouTube Android App Update
We’re introducing an improved look for the YouTube Android app. The update provides a consistent layout across mobile and allows for easier navigation within the app. These changes are largely the result of feedback from all of you – thanks for continuing to let us know how we can improve!
Navigation tabs are clearly labeled. It’s also easier to reach the tabs with your thumb as they’re now along the bottom.
“Account” and “Library” have been separated to make it simpler to find what you’re looking for. Your videos (e.g. playlists, watch history, uploads) are in “Library,” while your Account and Settings are located from the profile icon at the top.
The navigation bars are visible on all pages (except for Watch), so you can quickly navigate to one of the main navigation tabs.
The app remembers where you left off on each tab. For example, if you scroll down through the Home feed, then go to your Subscriptions tab, and then return to Home, you can easily pick up where you left off.
This design is already available on iOS and is slowly rolling out to Android. If you don’t have the new design yet, you will soon!
Let us know what you think below,
So: home screen -> tap on account -> tap on settings (things fly in and out weirdly) -> wait that's not what I wanted, tap back button* -> I'm on the home screen now? What?
