YouTube redesigns mobile app; adds new tabs


MUMBAI: If you watched a YouTube video recently, chances are you did it on your phone or tablet and also saw the new look and design of the app.

With more than half the views on YouTube coming from mobile devices, YouTube has now updated the official YouTube apps to bring an even better mobile experience to consumers thus making it easier than ever to find and create videos.

The update ? available now on Android, mobile web, and soon on iOS ? introduces three new tabs:

? Home: Easily explore and discover videos with recommendations based on watch history as well as personalized playlists.

? Subscriptions: Find the latest videos from your favorite channels and creators on the new Subscriptions tab. And to help make sure one never misses an upload, consumers can now tap the bell icon on channels to get a notification as soon as a new video is posted.

? Account: One can check out playlists, watch history, and the videos they have uploaded all in one spot.

Additionally, in the new updated app, one can also now watch full-screen vertical videos with just a single tap for the very first time.

?But YouTube isn?t just about enjoying videos; it?s a place to express yourself and show the world what you love. With the redesigned app you can take your creativity to new levels using a new set of video creation tools. You?ve got an amazing camera in your phone or tablet, and now you can trim your footage, tint the image with filters, add music, and upload ? all inside the app,? said YouTube product managers Matt Darby and Omri Amarilio.

?These are just a few of the features we?ve been working on, and you?ll see many more later this year,? the duo added.
