YouTube Channel Redesigns
YouTube’s new channel layout redesign looks quite slick compared to the channels we’ve had for the past few years. Less boxy, less separated, the channel page now feels like one solid entity. And this is only the beginning of the beta stage for the redesign.
YouTube was also smart enough to make this an open beta, for all users, not a select group of partners or friends of the editors. Round of applause there. If you’d like to try out the new channel design, click here (you can opt out at any time and revert back to your old channel design).

YouTube has started a new blog dedicated to the progress of the channel redesign. You can check this blog for known bugs and issues, to leave suggestions and feedbacks, or to just keep up on what’s in development for the new channel designs. Click here to visit that blog, and feel free to leave your thoughts about the redesign.
I’ve only been using the new YouTube channel design for about five hours, but so far I like it. When you change your settings, you can now see the effects in real-time on your actual channel page, as opposed to the approximate preview we had before. In the future, I believe the modules will be drag-and-droppable to rearrange/design your channel any way you see fit, like they are on the front page of YouTube. So I also look forward to that.
As for the rest of the changes rumored to be taking place today, I guess just… stay tuned.
