YouTube has announced that as of March 7th, all Channels will be automatically converted to the new YouTube Channel design. With this couple of months lead time, it’s a good idea to start upgrading your Channel now while you still have time. This new change allows you to select one of four templates as well as customizations to further engage your viewers.
YouTube’s blog post advises, “…you can opt in by clicking the blue “Try the new design” button on the top of your Channel page. You may also switch back to the old Channels design repeatedly before March 7 by clicking the “Switch Back” button in the appearance tab of the Edit Channel menu on your new Channel.”
I’m still not fully convinced on the new layout as it feels so “busy”. Although, I do find that YouTube has woven in the social integration nicely.
Additional YouTube resources can be found in the Help Center.
What are your thoughts on the new YouTube Channel design?
