YouTube for iOS Gets Material Design, New Video Editing Tools

The update brings the iOS version of the app closer to its Android counterpart.

Months after updating its YouTube for Android, Google has redesigned the YouTube app for iOS as well, changing its look and feel through material design, and adding a few more features, including video editing tools, gesture controls, and much more.

“With a new design, you can now have fun exploring videos you love more easily and quickly than before,” claims the app description on the App Store.

The update also adds three new tabs to the interface, namely Home, Subscriptions and Account. The Home tab suggests featured videos and videos that you may have recently viewed, while the Subscriptions tab allows you to stay updated with the content uploaded by your favorite subscribers.

In short, the update makes it easier to get access to your favorite channels, subscriptions and content.

Also arriving with version 10.38 are exciting in-app video editing feature that enable you to trim your videos and add filter as well as music to them. Gesture Controls is yet another addition in the iOS app, a feature which was first introduced in Google Chrome app.

The latest update is still rolling out as a 40.7MB free download at App Store, so it won’t be available for everyone at the moment.
