Almost all of us use Youtube, some more than others.  More than half of all of the views on Youtube are done via mobile devices making the Youtube app a top priority for Google.

Google announced a new update yesterday, and it will bring three new tabs to the app. Here are the new tab descriptions from the press release.

  • Home: Easily explore and discover videos you’ll love with recommendations based on your watch history as well as playlists personalized just for you.
  • Subscriptions: Find the latest videos from your favorite channels and creators on the new Subscriptions tab. And to help make sure you never miss an upload, you can now tap the bell icon on the channels you love to get a notification as soon as a new video is posted.
  • Account: Check out your playlists, watch history, and the videos you’ve uploaded all in one spot.



Another feature, which probably should have been implemented a while ago, is you can now watch full-screen vertical videos with just a single tap.  No more awkward landscape viewing of a vertical shot video.

The update doesn’t stop there.  Google also created a new set of tools for the Youtube app which will help you trim your videos, tint the image with filters, add music, and upload all within the app.  No more need to sit at a computer to make your perfect Youtube video.
