YouTube Updates Their Mobile Site–It’s Awesome

As we posted on our sister site, YouTube has made a significant upgrade to the mobile version of their site. If you visit on your iPhone, you’ll notice an entirely new layout. Here’s what the Google Mobile Team had to say:

Here’s what’s new about the new mobile site:

* It’s really fast.
* The new user interface incorporates larger, more touch friendly elements, making it easier to access videos on the go.
* It incorporates the features and functionality you’ve come to expect from the .com site, like search query suggestions, the options to create playlists,the ability to designate “favorite,” “like,” or “unlike” videos directly from your device.
* As we make improvements to, you’ll see them quickly follow on our mobile site, unlike native apps which are not updated as frequently.

This new change makes their mobile site compete with the native YouTube app on the iPhone. I think it’s a lot easier to navigate. Thanks Google.

This new change looks even better on the iPad. Check out the following video for a quick demo:
