YouTube has updated its platform. With the new design, you can now first forward or rewind from the right side. Looking closely, you will notice a subtle ambient lighting effect.
You can also adjust the lighting or background color to suit whatever you are watching. Not only that, the streaming platform has added a new feature, ‘Pinch -to-Zoom”.

The feature lets you zoom in on videos exactly as you do with your photos. YouTube began testing the new update in August. Note that the update is only for YouTube premium users/subscribers.

The lighting effect is rolling out on both web and mobile for everyone using dark mode/theme. It’s also extending the same look to videos in playlists. By this, you will not be bothered by the background in your video while watching.
A Darker Mode By YouTube
YouTube said it will introduce a darker version of the dark mode so your eyes won’t be affected in any way. It will also give your screen that interesting look whether on, a TV, phone, or laptop.
The platform is giving its subscribe button a new look and giving the links in video descriptions to buttons. Not only that, the like, share, and download buttons are formatted to minimize distractions. Do not be in shock when you see its video thumbnail appear with rounded corners, cos that is what is rolling out soon.
Wow! Lot of changes. We hope people can familiarize themselves with the update soon
