Google reportedly testing new YouTube mobile UI with card-based design
Google might be testing a new YouTube mobile interface, if a new report is to be believed.

The Google Operating System blog, citing a Google+ user named Nedas Petravicius. claims that the Mountain View giant is working on a new YouTube mobile interface, which is reminiscent of YouTube's Android mobile app. Nedas said on his Google+ post, "Google is testing a beautiful YouTube mobile web design."

The blog notes some of the changes include a cleaner interface, with the description and the number of likes and dislikes placed below the YouTube video, along with a red subscribe and action buttons.

The blog also claims that the new YouTube mobile UI includes a new logo, hamburger menu-style, big thumbs for videos, new font style and a grey background

Android Police further lists some changes that include the slide-out navigation drawer, which the site claims could have been pulled from an Android app. The site also speculates that the search engine giant might be working on a card-based redesign of the desktop version of the YouTube also.

In addition, Android Police in a report has claimed that Chromecasting from embedded YouTube videos has been rolled out to all videos.

The report cites the Google's Chromecast support page that reads, "Casting from YouTube is supported from the YouTube app,, and most embedded YouTube videos."

The site also tested the new Chromecast feature in some YouTube videos and said, "Every embedded video so far has been compatible with the Chromecast."

Earlier in February, Google added a new feature to its Search that showed users searching for a song or album the top music video result more prominently. The new Google Search displayed the music video on top of the regular results, generally from the artist's official YouTube channel; however, sometimes the videos appeared from a random YouTube user also, apart from other video sites.
