YouTube redesigns mobile app

youtube mobileYouTube has redesigned its official mobile app, adding clip editing tools and support for full-screen vertical videos for the first time.

The update – which is available now on Android and mobile web, and will follow soon on iOS – is designed to make it “easier than ever to find videos you love and create them, too,” according to YouTube.

“You’ve got an amazing camera in your phone or tablet, and now you can trim your footage, tint the image with filters, add music, and upload – all inside the app,” the firm said in a blog post announcing the update.

The new version of the app also introduces three new tabs: a ‘home’ tab that includes recommendations based on your viewing history; a ‘subscriptions’ tab for the latest videos from your favourite channels; and an ‘account’ tab that has your playlists, watch history, and uploaded videos.
