YouTube is rolling out its latest redesign for its website, complete with a “center-aligned look” that fits neatly to different screen sizes, and looks “similar to the mobile apps you’re spending almost half your YouTube time with” according to the company. There are now two prominent options on the YouTube homescreen: What to Watch, with recommendations and popular channels, and My Subscriptions, with the latest videos from channels you’ve subscribed to. Also interesting: more prominence for playlists, as YouTube encourages people to create and share their own collections of videos, while also browsing those of artists – Aloe Blacc is singled out in the company’s blog post. “Your guide now has all of the playlists that you created, as well as playlists from other channels you liked,” explains YouTube. “If you make a playlist, you’ll also see a new page that makes editing easier.” This is going to be used a LOT for music, especially by the people who use YouTube as their primary music listening service.
