YouTube app for Android gets new UI, bottom navigation bar

Google is rolling out a major update for YouTube app that brings refreshed UI and a new bottom navigation bar, so that it will be easier to navigate. The navigation bar on the bottom shows Home, Trending, Subscriptions, and Library tabs.

The new layout was already available on iOS, and was being tested on Android, but is now available for all.

Here's the full list of changes
  • Navigation tabs are clearly labeled. It’s also easier to reach the tabs with your thumb as they’re now along the bottom.
  • “Account” and “Library” have been separated to make it simpler to find what you’re looking for. Your videos (e.g. playlists, watch history, uploads) are in “Library,” while your Account and Settings are located from the profile icon at the top.
  • The navigation bars are visible on all pages (except for Watch), so you can quickly navigate to one of the main navigation tabs.
  • The app remembers where you left off on each tab. For example, if you scroll down through the Home feed, then go to your Subscriptions tab, and then return to Home, you can easily pick up where you left off.
As mentioned earlier, the update is already out for Android devices, and if you've not yet received it, it'll eventually be available soon.
