New look for YouTube site, playlist and guide updates ytKeane 2/20/14 4:20 PM

Starting today you’ll see some changes to make it easier to find what you want to watch on YouTube and collect playlists to watch again and again.

Here’s an overview of some of the key changes. As always, you can learn more in the Help Center.

Get to the Guide

The Guide can now be opened from the Guide icon at the top of the page, next to the YouTube logo.

Faster access to playlists

To get to your playlists more quickly, you can find them in the Guide. Playlists that you’ve created, as well as playlists that you’ve liked, appear here.

You’ll find the Like button in the menu next to the video whenever you’re watching a playlist created by someone else.

Toggle What to Watch and My Subscriptions

You can also quickly flip between what’s recommended and popular in “What to Watch” and the latest from your subscribed channels in “My Subscriptions,” with these options now front and center.


When you scroll down on a channel page, the channel navigation will pop into the top bar. This allows you to keep browsing the channel without scrolling back up.
