From time to time it kind of feels like YouTube is eternally trying out other interfaces for its Android app. In line with reviews now we have gained just lately, but any other set of adjustments is being examined. The newest spherical of tweaks is at the refined facet: some are seeing the thumbnails for particular person movies within the House tab display view counts, with more room for video titles and the channel emblem repositioned underneath. 

That is nearly usually any other one in all YouTube/Google‘s famed A/B checks, so if you do not see this new format but, that might be why. It is usually now not probably the most drastic exchange, and I truthfully did not understand it in the beginning look.

New format at the left, outdated format at the proper.

As you’ll be able to see above, the brand new thumbnail/card for movies presentations the view depend in a black field overlay at the video itself subsequent to the length, relatively than underneath with the identify of the channel. The avatar/emblem for the channel additionally seems to be to be somewhat smaller, and it is been relocated underneath in step with the channel identify, giving the video name the overall width.

This modification does not appear to be related to a special model of the YouTube app. Each Rita and I are working the most recent model (v13.06.53), and neither folks sees it. However, a few of our readers do have the tweaked format, and they are working the similar model. The check is most certainly brought about server-side.
