Back in December 2010, YouTube began experimenting with a new personalized homepage for users. The new homepage brought in a lot of changes including merging of subscriptions, ability to delete videos from the homepage and so on.
The experimental YouTube homepage seems to have reached the end of its testing cycle, since YouTube announced today that they would be rolling out the new personalized homepage to all users starting today.
The new YouTube homepage will only we available to users who have logged into the website.
Some of the new features which will be available to logged in users include:
- Increased focus on videos that matter to you (subscriptions, friend’s sharing, recommendations)
- You can easily filter your homepage to show only the latest uploads from your subscriptions
- Don’t miss anything; if a channel uploads four videos in a day, you’ll see all four – instead of just the latest video
- Quick access to the inbox when you have new messages or comments
- Knows what you have seen (videos you’ve watched are grayed out)
- Remove any video (hover and click the "x" button)
However, not everyone is going to like the new YouTube homepage, which was also suggested in the official post. So expect to see some backlash from users.
