The YouTube app for Android has a new update that brings with it a suite of changes. Most notably is the implementation of Material Design which brings some changes here and there to the overall look of the app.
You will now be greeted by a rather bright red toolbar when you launch the YouTube app. This toolbar changes colour according to the channel that you’re viewing, but as far as customising it to your liking, you’re out out luck. The updated app also brings along a more advanced search filter, making it much easier to find for videos that you really want.
Other changes to the app is a round profile picture on the left menu instead of a square one. The playlist tab from the very same menu has been removed, which is a rather odd thing to do. Other than that, you can now clear your watch history with a single tap; a very welcome addition.
Unfortunately, this update does not bring 60fps video support to the app, which was made available on the web version not too long ago, albeit only on certain browsers such as Google Chrome.
As of the writing of this article, the update isn’t available yet from the Google Play Store. It should be showing up sooner or later though, so keep checking for the update.
