I thought I noticed some changes with YouTube the past few weeks but I just assumed I must have missed some announcement and it was old news. Fortunately, I’m neither losing my mind or missing things. The YouTube blog summarized some recent updates to the site yesterday.
They discuss 6 different updates, some more noticeable than others.
The video end-screen now shows 12 different related videos instead of the fewer related videos with paging. This was the recent update that I saw and thought it looked a lot better but I wasn’t certain that it wasn’t just the end of a video how somebody was laying out their other videos.
Other updates include:
- Enhanced playlist bar
- Updated YouTube.com/Charts page
- WeVideo to extend editing and touching up videos
- Localized to Kenya, Phillipines, and Singapore
- Smart subscribe buttons tell you if you’re already subscribed
