  • YouTube is testing out a new UI design.
  • The new design moves the video title, description, and comments to the right side panel.
  • Video recommendations appear right below the video you’re watching.

It’s not uncommon for YouTube to occasionally tweak the look of its platform. Users will sometimes get an early look at potential design changes through tests that the company runs. The latest test introduces maybe the biggest change the UI has received in years and users are not a fan of it.

A selection of YouTube viewers have recently noticed there’s a little something different with the website. These users are reporting that the video title, video description, and comments have been moved to the right side panel. While video recommendations have been relocated to right under the video player.
