YOUTUBE HAS A NEW LOGO
One of the favorite and most visited websites, YouTube, has got a new logo. The new logo puts the “play” icon to the fore, instead of the previous word “tube”, and is done in a new, thick typeface.
According to statement from the company, the new icon is more flexible and will look better even on smaller cell phones, Business Insider writes.
The YouTube app will also get many new plugins and new interface design for ease of use and overall functionality. For example, we will be able to view the previous or next video by swiping a finger over the screen, and we will be able to slow down or speed up video content, as we currently have the option to do on the YouTube desktop version.
