Home / Computers/technology / News / Video: Youtube Gets A New Look And A New Logo!


For the first time in 12 years, the YouTube logo is seeing a change, it is being refreshed, shifting the emphasis away from the word "Tube" and onto a familiar play button which has already become an iconic shorthand for the company. 

That's not all, YouTube is also getting a new typeface, colour scheme, and a bunch of major changes to the look, feel, and functionality of its desktop and mobile app.

What started in 2005 as a singular website built for desktop internet users now exists on phones, tablets, game consoles, and, yes, television sets. What’s more, YouTube is no longer a single brand. Over the last few years, it has spawned a family of services: YouTube Kids, Gaming, Red, TV, and Music. 

In the end, the art department decided to keep things simple. There is one big, oft-requested feature everyone can try now; dark mode. As the name suggests, it turns all of the white UI elements and backgrounds black, which definitely makes video stand out more. People who don't always go full screen while watching videos on YouTube will definitely want to give this a go. Between a simpler UI, bigger video thumbnails and redesigned channel pages, the whole experience feels different but still familiar, a good goal to shoot for when redesigning such an important part of the internet.

A few changes are coming to the iOS and Android YouTube apps, as well. Perhaps most notable is that you'll be able to control playback speed, just as you can on the desktop.Head over to YouTube to see the updates and in the meantime check out this video to see how far YouTube has come since 2005!! It is an evolution, not a revolution!!
