    Maybe I don't grasp it entirely, but this doesn't appear to be following the material design guidelines. The content itself seems to mostly lack structure that I thought was a key component of building guis with that particular style guide. (Particularly when you compare this with the google drive UI.)

      Youtube is it's own thing now, it has it's own identity and brand separate from Google. It doesn't even use Roboto. I don't think it needs to follow Material UI in any meaningful way...

    Looks like a fucking bad dribbble unsolicited redesign.

      That's a bit harsh. I think the visual improvements are just fine when you take the size of the platform and the amount of users into account. No need to overreact.

    Oh my god what the hell. GOODBYE CONTRAST. Don't do this. (It feels good but that isn't the point)

    Google Chrome Version 58.0.3029.96 (64-bit).....Hamburger menu is completely broken. I get a black overlay on the screen but no menu appears.

    Good job Google :-/

    It feels like I'm watching porn now in the dark mode.

    Wait, you can't use it in Safari?

    Curious if others have the same issue, but my problem with YouTube is not the visual design, it's the navigation. Recommendations just never seem relevant, search results don't seem to bubble up the best results, and even just seeing a list of the latest videos of a channel requires more clicks than it should. Anyone else having this experience?

      Agree. I wish new videos by people I'm subscribed to were shown front and centre, rather than randomly shown by a somewhat okay algorithm.

    I like the dark mode. but not a fan of the user home page.

    Aesthetically, I don't care—in a few days I’ll forget what the old YouTube looked like.

    Functionally, I don’t like how my playlists auto play now instead of taking me to the list of videos. That decision definitely weakened the UX for me.

    Some designers being too inspired by some dribbble mockups?

    It feels unfinished. Try to edit a playlist (likes, etc). It goes back to the old design...

    Honestly can't tell the difference... I'm not a huge youtube user though

      Maybe that's part of what they were going for. They probably wanted to keep it mostly familiar so it's still easy to use.

    A bit bummed that this means the end of the excellent Youtube+ extension/Particle.

    I'll miss the floating player and the various layout enhancements.

    Days ago we talked about this. Now it's by default, I like it. Clearly looks like more suitable for tablets.

    It seems the call-to-action buttons still have the default cursor on hover.

    Not a fan. Feels a bit congested.
