Following enhancements to its music capabilities YouTube Lists All The Top Songs & Tracks When You Search By Artist Name YouTube Lists All The Top Songs & Tracks When You Search By Artist Name A small but important addition to YouTube makes discovering tracks and albums easier. Type in a search to see a long list of the top tracks and albums on the right linking to the videos. Read More last week, YouTube has begun rolling out a redesigned user interface for its Web version that gives it a more mobile-friendly look and puts a heavier emphasis on playlists.

The new look draws heavily from Google’s card-centric design philosophy seen across many of its apps. The homepage is now centered over a grey background with two tabs lining the top: What to Watch and My Subscriptions. The centered look should make YouTube display better on screens of any size, and is more akin to what users expect from YouTube’s mobile apps.

The sidebar along the left side can be toggled via a new guide button that stays consistently next to the YouTube logo in the top left corner. Any Playlists that you have created or liked will be featured prominently in this sidebar, just above your subscriptions. Now, when visiting the page of any YouTube channel, there is a tab just for Playlists along the top.

What do you think of YouTube’s new redesign? Is it a helpful move to unify Google’s services under one interface, or are they trying to fix something that isn’t broken? Let us know in the comments.

    I do not understand why ALL companies cannot offer a CHOICE of what "look"/behavior/capabilities their sites are, according to the individual consumers wants/needs/devices. (I understand the capitalist/control issue of MAKING you purchase/use new systems ONLY so that they can make/have more profit/control.)
    Very simple = "Do you want our mobile or desktop system/display/capabilities?" right on the homepage/setup page.

    SHHHEEEEESSSSSHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What happened to the youtube I used to enjoy on my desktop computer...yes I don't have a mobile apparatus, and I would like to have a volume control somewhere as well as a mute button. Otherwise, sayonara youtube, I'm looking for alternatives.

    I don't really like how the navigation buttons are now spread over the whole page, It's not like you are using a mobile phone and can reach everything with 1 thumb or hand. The old layout was much easier to navigate through with the most important buttons centered and to the left.

    I wish youtube or google or what ever would put "delete" buttons, icons, what ever, next to each and every single video that appears in the side bar on the right. there are videos that keep coming up over and over and over again that I don't want coming up. there should be a way to delete any videos you don't want coming up PERMANENTLY.

    also, for some reason, youtube, google, what ever, ALWAYS shows "recommended videos for me" that I'VE ALREADY SEEN. if I've already seen a particular video, why is it being "recommended" to me?

    computers are wonderful things; but some how, people always have to find a way to make things as annoying and as much of an irritant as possible.

      dude. i have these exact same problems. 1) being recommended videos that i've already seen and 2) not being able to tell YouTube that you really don't want to see a certain video or videos from a particular channel.

      Hopefully they've got some more updates coming.

    All of these changes, and yet still no way to set "Subscriptions" as the default view for the homepage. Since the Subscriptions section is possibly the most important part of Youtube (after the search), it is annoying that this hasn't happened yet. Especially considering that the "What to Watch" page repeatedly fails to deliver relevant content.
