We covered YouTube’s secret new dark mode a couple of weeks ago and although it was still buggy and glitchy, it worked. Once you had installed the dark mode the YouTube interface looked different, and as we expected, YouTube has posted a new blog explaining the new look and feel of YouTube.
In essence, the blog says that they are working towards an easier and more fun YouTube. They plan on doing this by changing the look and feel of the website. The blog claims that they are working towards beauty, simplicity, and consistency. They plan on reaching these new goals by implementing their new material design.
The new design is very simplistic with the bold text and white background. As for the consistency, we will have to wait and see. We do know that YouTube is really strafing towards a safe and consistent website and this new design can help them with that.
If you want to try the design you can check it out here and if you don’t like it just click on your profile picture in the top right and click on restore classic youtube.
