Google is known for shaking things up quite a bit in its first party Android apps. Over the last few months, we’ve seen more than a few major updates delivered in droves for these applications. Despite this, we haven’t seen much in the way of mobile web-app updates—at least not when compared to the dramatic changes to its native apps.
Now, Google has issued a major update to its YouTube mobile web-app, bringing it inline with Android’s latest UI paradigms. The updated mobile website features many UI traits previously seen in the native Android YouTube app. These include a card-based video suggestions and the now ubiquitous “hamburger menu” that has all but eliminated the need for dedicated menu real estate.
This isn’t really a big deal for most of us. Let’s face it, we all have the native app installed for our nyancat pleasure. However, it is nice to see Google unifying its various UIs across the board.
