This new logo is just the latest of the changes that have happened to the service lately. However, the biggest change of all is an all new logo for the online video service. Google launched a beta recently so that more people could try out the new interface. So essentially, YouTube ditched their traditional appears, that starts from the logo itself. That's all topped off by the redesign YouTube logo you see above. The updated logo consists of the YouTube icon - a red tube with a white screen and a red play button - followed by the YouTube wordmark in black. The overall design is more flexible so it works better across different devices. YouTube chief product officer Neal Mohan published a blog post explaining everything the team has been working on in recent years while revealing some of the new features coming to the mobile app, the desktop redesign and, for the first time, a new logo.
The mobile app is seeing some changes and new features, too.
YouTube has undergone a series of significant changes over the past few years, but on Tuesday, all of the pieces finally began to come together. Notably, the American media-giant also added, that they'll bring a new way that could magically warp the player according to the videos you're watching. Give it a try! An upcoming gesture will allow users to jump between videos with a single swipe. Users of the mobile YouTube app will also be able to speed up or slow down the playback of a video with this new update, as they already can on the desktop. This means you'll no longer get black bars at the side of vertical videos. A new feature also showcases a row of suggested videos while you're watching something in full screen.
