One day after pushing a big Gmail for Android update, Google has revealed a refreshed design for its YouTube app. Starting today, the YouTube apps for Android and iPhone are getting a refreshed Home design with large, high-res thumbnail images to help you quickly identify the videos in the feed.
Google has also baked in a better recommendation system that should offer more relevant and personalized video suggestions. This new recommendation system is based on deep neural network tech, which means that the more you use it, the more it’ll learn and get better at recommending videos for you to watch.
While the YouTube app’s refreshed Home screen certainly looks nice with its larger thumbnails, the better video recommendations are potentially a bigger improvement. The recommendation engine can help you to find entertaining videos when you’re bored and want something new to watch, and with this improved system, you should get videos that are more relevant to your interests.
This improved YouTube app is now rolling out on Android and iPhone, so keep an eye out for it.
