Youtube is bringing a new YouTube homepage — a design that brings more features on Home to help users videos easier.
The updated design will begin rolling out today across desktops and YouTube apps on Android and iOS tablets, and will be available to everyone soon.
This new look includes longer video titles and larger thumbnails, plus higher resolution video previews. As part of this cleaner design, Youtube has also removed some content shelves. You can still find rows of videos for breaking news, music mixes, and more. When browsing on Home, you’ll also see channel icons below each video making it easier to recognize your favorite creators and content.
Youtube is also introducing the option to add to queue on desktop. You can select a handful of videos to watch next without interrupting the video you’re currently watching. Videos in your queue won't save after you've closed your browser, but you can always save videos to your permanent "Watch Later" playlist, too.
Youtube launched a feature on mobile earlier this year to make it simpler for you to tell the service to stop suggesting videos from a particular channel, and today this feature is coming to desktop. Just select the three-dot menu next to a video on the homepage, then select “Don’t recommend channel.” After that, you should no longer see videos from that channel suggested to you on the YouTube homepage. You may still be able to find these videos if you search for them, or visit the channel page or Trending tab.
Earlier this year, Youtube added a new feature to the YouTube Android app that lets you select your favorite topics and customize your Home feed with related videos. Youtube promised to release it on desktop and tablets soon.
