Google's YouTube service is getting a new coat, or let's say a new look. The latest update rolling out starting today adds an improved UI for the YouTube application on Android devices.

According to developers, the new version of YouTube should make it easier for users to navigate through its menu, especially thanks to the new layout.

For those of you who want to know more about the update, here are a few of details offered by YouTube. First off, the navigation tabs are better marked now, so it should be easier to reach them with your thumb.

Furthermore, the Account and Library are now completely separate tabs so that users can find them easier. All videos are now stored in Library, while Account and Settings tabs have been relocated from the profile icon at the top.

Aside from the Watch, all navigation bars are now visible on all pages. Last but not least, the YouTube app now remembers where you left off on each tab.

The update is now rolling out to all Android devices, but YouTube developers confirmed the new design is already available on iOS platform. Since this is a staged roll-out, it might take some time to reach all compatible devices, so if you don't have the new design yet, you will get it eventually.
