At first, Google only redesigned the YouTube logo for mobile devices but now it is extended to desktop and web versions of YouTube as well. In today’s update, the revised YouTube icon was displayed on the left side bar of the app. Whereas, Internet Archive reveals that the previous icons were still visible till yesterday. Just like all Google app changes, this update will also take time to show up on every individual desktop version of YouTube. This new update is aligned to the updates made back in October and November of 2020 of web version.

Google not really changes the icon display and when it does, the revised versions are more basic ones and are not usually appreciated by the users. Firstly, updates were revealed on mobile phones and then extended to larger extent and become available on website versions as well.
