YouTube’s line art icons make the jump to your TV, complete with a new resolution button

I do not learn about our readers, however I spend a shocking period of time watching YouTube on my TV reasonably than my telephone. Since the video size typically goes effectively over 30 minutes, it simply feels proper to throw it on the massive display screen like a TV present. It took a whereas, however that model new line art look we have seen for Android, the net, and even YouTube Music is lastly coming to the TV UI – alongside with a higher resolution show.

YouTube’s thinner icons proved divisive after they first launched smartphones final yr, however I’d guess most individuals are used to them by now. With that damaging reception out of the means, Google is free to lastly change its icons on one among its final locations: televisions. Two completely different tipsters, every utilizing a Samsung TV and an Xbox, seen this new look on the massive display screen, and I can verify it is on my Chromecast with Google TV, too.

Left: Ancient symbols. To the proper: New symbols with resolution show.

That’s not the solely change to YouTube’s TV app. Along with the up to date person interface, the high quality indicator now makes use of new icons with labels to present your resolution with out opening the menu. If you are somebody making an attempt to make the most of that costly OLED panel that you simply acquired on final yr’s Black Friday sale, that is a godsend of a characteristic. You now not have to open a menu to make positive you are set to a particular resolution.

It looks like that is some form of server change and never an precise replace. For instance, Artem Russakovskii from AP has the new high quality indicator, however not the new icons. Nonetheless, the transition from YouTube to its new look seems to be all however complete.
