YouTube gets a makeover with a new look AND logo
YouTube jumped onto people's screens 12 years ago, and since then, the massive online video service connects over 1.5 billion people from around the globe to original content, music, news, cat videos, and so, so much more.
Now the company is taking its familiar logo — the black You with the white Tube in the bright red box with the slightly rounded corners that's meant to symbolize the site's play button — and is making a few changes… but that's not the only thing that's changing on one of the internet's largest sites to ever exist...
What's new, YouTube?
YouTube's logo will be changing, along with the look of the site altogether — there will be new fonts and colors across YouTube's desktop and mobile apps.
Another super cool feature that's new to YouTube is dark mode, which darkens the white parts of your screen so you can easily enjoy a more theatre-like atmosphere as you watch your favorite YouTubers!
When will we start seeing these changes?
The changes should be rolling out on your mobile devices and desktop later today!
What do you think?
Do you think YouTube's logo change is a big deal, or could you care less about it as long as all your favorite videos are still available for easy viewing?

I'm far more concerned with their growing censorship than their superficial makeover.
+1, it's getting ridiculous. Not to mention all the ****** ads
Totally agree -- but that ******* autoplay left on by default is still the biggest nuisance
