Changes Coming to YouTube Will Affect Up Next Queues, and Number of Videos on Home Page

One aspect of YouTube that a lot of people are familiar with is the up next feature. This basically turns your YouTube viewing experience into a kind of playlist, one that would enable you to look into the various offerings that YouTube has. A lot of people have criticized this feature however because of the fact that it has a tendency to show videos that often have nothing to do with the video that you are currently watching, and you might want more control over your viewing experience.

A new update that is coming to YouTube seems like it will be changing all of this by giving you this control. You will now be able to opt for a customized playlist that you can browse through, one that would play your desired videos one after the other in the order that you choose.

This is definitely going to help users have a more enjoyable time on the platform, and is going to address an issue that has long been affecting the kind of service that YouTube aims to provide.

More changes are also coming to YouTube, specifically to the desktops version and tablet app. The change that is happening in this area has to do with the homepage, which is going to get an updated look. While the mobile app’s look is more or less going to remain the same, the desktop and tablet app are going to have larger icons for videos, higher quality preview as well as longer video titles.

This is going to impact the creator community most of all since it will make their videos seem a lot more enticing than they would have been otherwise.

Similarly, Users can remove channel suggestions that they don’t want to watch on YouTube right from their home feed. Overall these changes are going to be welcomed by users who have been waiting for them for quite a long time.

"Starting today, we’re bringing you the new YouTube homepage — a design that brings more features to the viewing experience on Home to help you find the next great video to watch. The updated design will begin rolling out today across desktops and YouTube apps on Android and iOS tablets, and will be available to everyone soon.", announced Essam El-Dardiry, YouTube's Senior Product Manager.
