Google now testing a new UI for the Android version of YouTube
« on: November 01, 2019, 10:58:57 AM »
YouTube is one of those apps, like Maps, Assistant and Duo, that Google is always trying to improve. Even the smallest of UI changes is considered for testing and this time the YouTube comments section is part of an A/B test according to Google. What Google is testing is the moving up of the comment section to a spot right below the video description. The idea is to make it easier for those watching a video to read and post comments on the video even while in the middle of viewing it.

Currently, to see the comments section, you have to scroll past the videos that are "Up next." The UI being tested will show you three featured comments right under the description of the video. Tapping on any of these three (even when the video is running) will bring up the complete comments section along with a prompt allowing users to join in the discussion. Scrolling past the "Up next" section, where the comments are located now, will show a note reminding those participating in the test that the comments section has moved to the top.
