YouTube Introduces New UI Layout
As more and more apps are heavily focusing their efforts on more content creation to boost ad revenues, YouTube, one of the most seasoned platforms for creators has made a UI design change that seeks to make the process of content creation easier. The update is already live on newer versions of Android while iOS will receive the update in the near future.
Since most people have their phones with them all the time, the update makes it easier for people to create content on the go with a new Create option that will be placed at the centre of the bottom navigation bar and the previously present Notifications & Subscriptions options have now been moved from their previous positions to accommodate the new create option.
The new update is in line with youtube’s attempts to make the platform more streamlines for creators and the app had previously introduced features like the blur editor and adjustable timestamps to enable the same. It had also recently introduced short-form videos to keep up with the TikTok and Reels trend. How the platform receives these updates remains to be seen.
