I was visiting the YouTube homepage today loads these new icons in the left aspect-rail and navigation menu. It applies to Home, Explores, Subscriptions, Originals, Library, and extra, however now not YouTube Music, a brand.
In contrast to the mobile app implementation, these outlines are never crammed in even while you’re viewing a selected web page. The advanced tab you’re viewing is ever so barely brighter as compared to the non-decided icons. It does pretty impede visibility.
Meanwhile, the icons also are visible inside the top bar for voice seek, upload, the YouTube apps switcher, and notifications.
Along with a custom font, these icons are the trendy sign that YouTube has a vastly unique visual identity than different Google packages governed using Material. This outlining method makes the icons much less likely to stand out on a hectic web page, which is both a terrific and terrible component, relying on the design goal. While lighter, also they look more popular.
The YouTube Music apps haven’t begun to be up to date with this new style, although it’s been noticed in trying out.
