YouTube, the world’s largest video sharing platform, has changed the video page design change on the Android and iOS app. Now when users open a video, the next videos will be listed below as thumbnails.
Recently, YouTube has made many innovations focused on users to watch more content, trying to make its interface as functional as possible. This time, the company changed the design of the video page for Android and iOS apps.
In the old design, you had to scroll down to the bottom for comments on the video. Now, the comment section is located just below the subscribe button and notification buttons. In this section, you will see the total number of comments on the video and the top comment.
YouTube aims for users to watch more content with new page design
Another innovation in the design is about the next videos. Now when you open a video, the videos in the queue will be listed below almost as a full-width thumbnail. Next and autoplay sections are now in the left and right corners under the comments.
On the other hand, the next content is not just videos. In addition to YouTube Mixes, updates, polls, images and GIFs from creators will be lined up one after another. As I said above, underlying YouTube’s design change lies in enabling users to watch and discover much more content.
Those who follow will know, YouTube’s new video page was introduced two weeks ago and was released in beta. The narrowing and top of the comments section was one of the first innovations. As of today, the new video page design has been released to more Android and iOS users.
According to the ‘Digital 2020 – Global Digital Overview’ report of We Are Social, which also contains information about the number of social media users, YouTube’s video-sharing platform operating under Google has more than 2 billion users globally.
