YouTube has changed its logo time and time again. However, the changes made were not that significant. For the first time since its launch, the YouTube logo has been completely redesigned. They have incorporated the definitive play button in their logo. This was a rather bold move by YouTube since nobody expected it.
The new logo is probably the most significant redesign they have come up with. The focus has been shifted from the word, ‘Tube’ and the red play button has been added right before ‘YouTube.’ The font used has also been revised and the entire text has been recolored to black.
The YouTube logo is not the only thing that they have come up with. The new logo and improved website was made available to users globally. The website now boasts a simpler and a neater design making it easier for the users to navigate around the website. They have also added a new feature which helps toggle the background of the interface. Users now have the option to switch from the traditional white background to a black background which will make it easier on the eyes of the users who like browsing YouTube at night.

Incorporating the YouTube Play Button in the YouTube logo can also be seen as a tribute to the community for all the hard work that they put in. YouTube awards Silver, Gold and Diamond Play Buttons to channels that have over a hundred thousand subscribers. The Silver Play Button is for channels that are able to get 100,000 Subscribers, the gold play button is for channels with over one million subscribers. Subscribers with over ten million subscribers are awarded with the esteemed gold play button.
The new YouTube logo does not only captivate the interest of new viewers but also pays homage to the community that shaped YouTube into what it is today!
