YouTube is getting a significant redesign that puts subscriptions front and center. Over the past several months, Google has been pushing a cleaner, simpler design language on its myrid sites and apps, and now YouTube is getting the same look and feel, adding the same white and grey color scheme and sparse layout found in apps like Google+ and Google Now . While you’ve always been able to subscribe to channels, Google is pushing how the subscription-focused design is “just like adding your favorite shows to your DVR.” Watching videos has changed, too, with content edging closer to the top of the screen, and playlists showing up just to the right, making it easier to flip through other videos on the same channel.
