YouTube recently unveiled yet another redesign of its website, putting more emphasis on channels that users will want to continue watching rather than the latest viral videos. The YouTube apps for Android tablets and mobile websites have been redesigned to follow that same format.
Android tablets with 10-inch screens will see the new "Guide" user interface that focuses attention on videos from a user's YouTube subscriptions. It also recommends channels a user should follow and shows larger thumbnails on the home screen of the app. Video pages include large thumbnails for related videos that users can add to their queue, as well as descriptions for the video, sharing options, and ratings.
The mobile website has also been changed to reflect the new YouTube design. Members can visit m.youtube.com to see the change, or download the latest version of YouTube for an Android tablet with a 10-inch screen.
