In an attempt to revamp its user interface, YouTube for Android is currently running tests on a new redesign. The focus of this change is the introduction of the “You” Tab, which will replace the longstanding Library option.
In this new design, users will notice that the familiar profile avatar, once found in the top-right corner, has now shifted to the bottom bar. This newly positioned avatar icon will lead users to the “You” Tab. This fresh tab appears to be a blend of the previous account menu’s functionalities combined with the Library.
The alteration is striking, mainly because most Google apps traditionally feature the account picture in the top-right position. The new positioning on YouTube, oddly, mirrors the layout seen on platforms like Instagram and other social media apps. The possible intent behind this change could be to align YouTube’s user interface closer to popular social platforms.
Upon tapping on the “You” Tab, users will first see their channel information. Following this, there are quick-access buttons for functionalities like Switch Account, Accessing the Google Account, and the Incognito mode.
Another change that’s hard to miss is the accessibility of the app settings. Users can now quickly find them through a gear icon, which is prominently displayed only on the “You” page. This provides a quicker route compared to the previous design.
In this revamped layout, sections for History and Playlists have been transformed into carousels. This major usability change underscores the fact that YouTube no longer views this page as a mere Library.
Additional features found within the “You” Tab include sections for all user videos, Downloads, Clips, Movies, Premium benefits, and Time Watched. There’s also a section for Help & Feedback.
However, it’s important to note that not all users can currently see the “You” Tab. Its availability is still limited, indicating that YouTube might be in the early stages of testing this design. Users can expect a broader rollout once YouTube finalizes the changes based on feedback and test results.

Spotify CEO Calls Out Apple and Google for Unfair Play in Music Streaming
Spotify’s CEO Daniel Ek has spoken out against big tech companies like Apple and Google. He says they both control the music streaming market and also compete in it. This he feels is not fair.
Daniel Ek talked to the Financial Times about this. He said it’s like Apple and Google are the referees of a game but they are also playing in it. He thinks this is wrong and not good for other companies trying to compete.
He also said these big companies make their own rules. This can hurt other companies trying to do business. They also have a lot of control over how many people use the internet. Daniel Ek thinks this is too much power.
Because of all this, Daniel Ek is asking the UK government to make a new law. This law will make sure that if a company is in charge of a market it can’t also compete in that market. This law is called the Digital Markets Competition and Consumers Bill (DMCC). It is now being made.
