YouTube Web Page Getting A Redesign

YouTube is a service that we all use at least every now and then. If you want to listen to music, watch something creative or laugh at someone being stupid then you can find everything. YouTube is such a phenomenon that the users who get popular on there become celebrities in their own right. Because of this, how the website and the app look are very important. The app's appearance changes regularly, but it's been a while since the website has had a redesign and now it appears to be getting one. A few Chrome users have spotted the change and have been discussing it on Reddit.

The new design looks as if they're trying to streamline the site and they want it to look neater and more accessible. The new look reminds me a little of how they app used to look at one point and it's not too bad. There's a larger theater screenthat makes watching videos out of full screen easier and they've also made it so it's easier to find videos and recommendations. This should hopefully make it easier to find new things to watch so it'll be even easier to spend hours binge watching YouTube videos when the update comes into effect for everyone. The new look also features a sidebar with cleaner icons so you can click through the different categories of videos if you so like. In general, the site just looks less cluttered and the logo is bigger, it might not sound like a huge update, but it does make everything look different.

This redesign was pointed out in a Reddit thread where people wanted to know if it was real. It's been confirmed as many people have been able to get the new redesign to work as well. If you want to test it out yourself, then you need to open up YouTube in Chrome in an incognito window. Make sure you've got the US (worldwide) site open and that you're not signed in. You should be able to open up the developer tools and if you go into the resources tab and be able to delete the VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE cookie. You will then need to define the cookie with this in the console section: document.cookie="VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=Qa1hUZu3gtk;path=/;dom

Once the page has reloaded you should be able to see the new design. You might not see anything even if you follow all the instructions. Some users have even managed to get redesign to work on Firefox too, but there's no instructions to make it work on there. We don't know if YouTube definitely plan on rolling this out or when, but it definitely looks like they're rolling them into place.
