YouTube Prepping for User-Friendly Makeover

Recently, a Thai-based blog reported that YouTube is preparing for some radical redesigning of its user interface. The changes have not yet rolled out to everyone, but to a smaller group of users to test the new makeover of its user interface. So, there will be only few lucky users who are experiencing a new redesigned YouTube interface.

In addition to an updated look, the major change that YouTube has brought in new makeover is the ability to load shared content from its Google’s young social platform. This is obviously a part of Google’s strategy of bringing its social platform capabilities to each of its products.

The focus on user subscriptions is a handy way to encourage users’ participation in particular channels. YouTube is already putting some efforts in investing original content to provide a unique video sharing experience to its users.

Although, we have not personally experience the new changes, but we can make assumptions based on available that what we are going to see in the upcoming YouTube’s redesign.

An Overview of Redesign:

  • A deeper Google+ integration will enable you to view the YouTube content your Circles share to Google+. You will be able to view user-recommended videos from your close friends.
  • Your Subscriptions will be sorted out in the new left-column dashboard that will offer you simple clickable sections, such as featured videos, recommended content etc.
  • While displaying Homepage content in a single column, the YouTube offer a larger preview images for the videos.
  • You will have a new highlighted content with different color schemes and a new gray background.
  • YouTube has tweaked the ‘full screen’ button in videos that will offer you an option to shrink, expand or to view videos in full screen mode.
  • When you will click on recommended videos, it will open in a pop out window. This will ensure that you will get back to the page where you were before clicking the recommended video.
  • You will find a YouTube logo on the top left of the page. You will lead to “http://www.youtube.com/guide” on clicking it.
  • For an updated version, YouTube’s favicon will also be pulled off.

We have tried to cover some most significant updates and we hope there will be others as well which we have missed to include in our list. We are trying to reach Google for comments and will come back to with more updates as soon as we get any.

We have included a couple of screenshots as well that will give a better idea of what you are going to have in the next makeover of YouTube.
