How to Enable the New YouTube Design Now

Last week we told you that YouTube is preparing to introduce new user-friendly makeover to its video sharing platform. The redesign of YouTube is Google’s attempt to combine the looks of all its online services and products. As the new redesign is not instantly available to all the users, it will be rolled out to large user base in stages. However, you are keen to have a look at the new redesign and want to have it straight-away, follow our guide given below to enable new YouTube design.

A blog covering the latest and greatest consumer electronics, the Verge brings this method to us. A short guide is provided on the blog so as to allow the users to enable the new YouTube user-friendly interface on any of your favorite browsers.
