YouTube Testing New Homepage, Emphasising on Personalized Video Browsing and Watching Experience

Starting today, when you visit YouTube.com, a button would ask you to check out an experimental homepage. It’s an opt-in experiment, offering a homepage, here’re some of the enhancements include:

  • Combined list – Merges your subscriptions, friend activity, and recommendations into one easier-to-scan list (and a “Subscription uploads” tab if you only want to see subscriptions)
  • Don’t miss a video – If a channel uploads 4 videos in a day, you’ll see all 4 – instead of just latest video
  • Delete anything – Hover over any video you don’t want to watch and click “x”
  • Or just grey it out – Videos you’ve already watched will be grayed out – so even without deleting, you’ll know where you left off
  • Help me re-find stuff I just watched – Your homepage will include your recent likes and favorites so you can easily get back to them
  • Easy inbox – Links to your inbox (personal messages & comments) are front and center
  • Load much more – Watch older videos – all without leaving the homepage
