It’s here, folks – the YouTube Android app has finally entered good company by having a Material Design makeover.
The design of the new app isn’t entirely unexpected: things like circular avatars, full-height navigation drawer and a toolbar coated in YouTube’s signature red colour all feature in the YouTube 6.0 update. Channels are receiving a nice makeover, with channel art being sourced to dynamically adjust the colour of the app toolbar. A new launcher icon is also included, bringing it into line with the rest of Google’s app icons.
The update is rolling out now via Google Play, but if you prefer not to wait to “get Material” you can grab the APK and install it manually from APK Mirror.
