The fact that YouTube has a habit of changing features of the site frequently. During this period, the video hosting platform has increased the size of the thumbnails of videos on the homepage screen.
With respect to the increased size of thumbnails, only a few videos are seen on a single page. Now those with a smaller device screen display now see just 2 or 3 videos in a row and those with a bigger screen or on the desktop can see up to four videos in a row.
The changes are criticized by YouTubers who expressed their opinions on several social media platforms. The majority of the users expressed their views on Twitter and Reddit. In regards to their posts and tweets on the changes, they are grieved of scrolling more and more to find their favorite videos.
There’s a more possibility that YouTube’s redesign is an effort to be more accessible probably a test to fetch reactions before being issued a wider rollout.
View from YouTubers:
This new interface with large icons is more convenient for a bigger screen and Android TV because it obviously makes the icons more visible and bold. Those with small screens do not have any advantage from this change.
