Youtube Gets a Slicker and Cooler Interface But Is It A Real Improvement?

As we get nearer to  the end of the year, and often many companies prepare by rolling new bells and whistles,  Youtube has rolled out a major overhaul on their design interface.  While it does look a lot sleeker and adds a host of options it will be interesting to see if this overhaul will actually enhance viewer experience.  It’s an interesting risk since Youtube has pulled away from it’s simple and clean interface.  The following video has a quick overview of the customization options that are now available.

This is Youtube’s new front page interface, of course with some of my own interface options, so the view may look different from your own.

Design wise the interface looks great but if you are already struggling to keep up with all the options available to you in developing your Youtube channel,  Youtube has just  upped the ante.  In fact there are mixed opinions on these new changes, and videos with access to script changes to revert back to the old interface are becoming readily available.  Even the video posted above has several thousand dislikes.

In my opinion, perhaps Youtube wasn’t forthcoming on how drastic the changes would be and have irritated their loyal users to say the least.  I will be tweaking and updating my own channel in the following weeks and checking under the hood, so to speak, on design changes.
