YouTube applies new Material Design, adds Dark Theme, Adapts new Logo and much more!

When YouTube launched 12 years ago, it was a single website that supported one video format, 320x240 at 4:3 aspect ratio. Fast forward to today, and YouTube lets you watch any combination of SD, HD, 4K, 360, 3-D, and live video on nearly every device with an internet connection – from desktops to phones, tablets to TVs, game consoles, and even VR headsets.
Now YouTube has made changes to its design on both mobile and desktop version of website and on its mobile app too. Here are list of them for YouTube mobile App:
Clean new design: YouTube made the header white to let content take the lead and moved the navigation tabs to the bottom of the app so they’re closer to your thumbs. We also added new Library and Account tabs that give you easy access to what you’re looking for.
Videos that move with you: Earlier this year, YouTube introduced a gesture that allows you to double tap on the left or right side of a video to fast forward or rewind 10 seconds. In the coming months, YouTube will experiment with a feature that lets you jump between videos with a simple swipe of your hand: just swipe left to watch a previous video or swipe right to watch the next one.
Watch at your own pace: Users love that they are able to speed up and slow down the playback of a video on desktop, and now this feature is available on mobile app from today, so you can enjoy videos at whatever speed you prefer.
Adapt to any video, beautifully: Soon, the YouTube player will seamlessly change shape to match the video format you’re watching, such as vertical, square or horizontal. That means you’ll always get the best viewing experience automatically – including vertical videos with no black bars on the sides
Browse and discover while you watch: YouTube recently added a feature that lets you view a row of suggested videos while you’re watching in full screen. YouTube is also working on transforming the area below the player so you can browse videos in totally new ways.
The new desktop design of YouTube is now available to all users around the globe starting today! The new look applies Material Design to YouTube and delivers a fresh, simple and intuitive user experience that lets content shine. Another amazing feature of this new desktop design is Dark Theme, which turns the background dark while you watch for a more cinematic look.

The bright red cherry on top of this update sundae is a refreshed YouTube Logo and YouTube Icon. Designed for our multi-screen world, the updated Logo combines a cleaned up version of the YouTube wordmark and Icon, creating a more flexible design that works better across a variety of devices, even on the tiniest screens.

That's it.
