YouTube to Get Google’s Material Design

Google is advancing to ascend its Material Design alteration through its desktop products and it seems like an update to YouTube isn’t too far.

YouTube to Get Google’s Material Design

The way to enable it right away is really easy in Google Chrome on the desktop. On the website, you would now have a Material Design-inspired Search bar in the middle and the ‘Upload’ button has been substituted by the same upload arrow you perceive on Google’s mobile apps.

The most noteworthy modifications come to the Channel pages, with the background color now similar to the foremost color of your header image, and a revised round logo instead of the formerly square designing and overall less appealing page layout. Giving designers a more personal-feeling page creates a lot of sense assuming that they’re the life force of the platform.

The circular icon tactic has also been pragmatic to the main sidebar menu, which generally marks it a lot neater and more contemporary. The video player page itself is really one of the minimum changed features under the material design strategies, with the introduction of more white space around videos, instead of a grey background to aid delineate between different page elements.
There are some other trivial changes to realize, and if you’re a Chrome user, you can enable the new design right now.
If you want it to work, you’ll need to use Chrome and visit the US version of the site, instead of a native version.
  1. Visit https: youtube.com/?gl=US
  2. Open the designer tools (ctrl + shift + i)
  3. Go to the ‘Resources’ tab and delete the VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE cookie for the YouTube domain
  4. Go to the console and stat the VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE cookie using the following command:

document.cookie=”VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=Qa1hUZu3gtk;path=/;domain=.youtube.com”;

At present the Material Design changes only reveal if you’re not logged into an account. If you are, and you follow the directions, it should return to the new design once you click log out. If you want to take the Material Design one step forward, you can enable it for Chrome itself right now.
