Sources suggest that the American video-sharing website was testing its new Material Website design for more than a year.

The responsive website design is revamped to provide the desktop users with the same experience as that of its mobile counterpart.

YouTube debuts infinite scrolling where users can scroll the profile banner end-to-end. A larger hero video will be featured on the user’s profile page. When a user opts for theater mode, the search bar turns black to match the interface with the rest of the screen. Lastly, users can enable the Dark Mode by clicking on the user icon and modifying the settings. Safe to say, YouTube is coming up with a holistic experience with its state-of-the-art responsive web design.
