Google has been working hard on its apps bringing them closer together in looks and feel. YouTube has received a significant redesign that puts subscriptions front and centre Google has over the past several months, been pushing a cleaner, simpler design language on all its sites and apps, and now it’s YouTube turn in getting a spruce up with the same look and feel, adding the same white and grey colour scheme and lite (easy-on-the-eye) layout found in apps like Google+ and Google Now.
Having the same look and feel across its apps bring a easy feeling on the eye. While you’ve always been able to subscribe to channels, Google is pushing how the subscription-focused design is “just like adding your favourite shows to your DVR.” Watching videos has changed, too, with content edging closer to the top of the screen, and playlists showing up just to the right, making it easier to flip through other videos on the same channel. With YouTube investing heavily in its own original channels, it only makes sense that it would try to make that content as easy as possible to access and navigate through, and the new design is a big step in that direction.
