YouTube for Android and iOS has new changes. Google introduces a new look for the video card and larger video thumbnails appear there. These changes also include comments and have been previously tested. YouTube drew conclusions from the pilot program and has now decided to make modifications.
YouTube is changed from time to time and it is no different this time. The application for Android and iOS devices introduces a new video card preview. Google decided to make some modifications here that were previously tested with selected users. Among them are larger movie thumbnails.
Video pages now have larger video thumbnails, but that’s not all. YouTube was looking for such solutionsthat will increase viewer engagement, and this can be done through comments. Earlier it was necessary to scroll to them, but after the changes they were placed higher. Right under the channel bar. By default, one item (the best one) is displayed, but touching it will display all of them.
YouTube has previously tested this solution. These showed that users in the new view were actually more likely to post comments below the videos. Therefore, it was decided to drill this view permanently. Changes are already being made.
YouTube on iOS and Android with changes not all yet
Google announced these changes about two weeks ago. Now they are implemented in the YouTube application. On both iOS and Android. However, they are not yet visible to everyone, which should change in the next few days, because it is full rollout probably won’t last longer.
