US-based internet search firm; Google Corp. has finally made the redesigned layout for its video sharing platform; YouTube for Android official.

Notably, the biggest features according to multiple online reports, is the repositioning of the navigation bar, earlier placed at the top of the screen, to the bottom half just like on the iOS counterpart of the app, and also the upload button, which was earlier a floating button, has now been shifted to the top bar. The redesign has been claimed to allow YouTubers easily navigate within the app.

The update also reduces the size of the top navigation bar substantially while other options in the top bar include the ones for casting videos and for searching them on the platform.

As per reports by the Android Police Website, while users will be able to find their likes, uploads, favorites, and playlists in Library, they will have to tap on the YouTube user icon to get access to account and app settings.

“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,” Marissa a Community Manager at Google explained in her post on the help forum.

Editor’s Note: The new design is rolling our gradually to Android users.
