At the moment, the new desktop interface is available to a small group of users worldwide, since what is currently available is available in the preview phase, although those interested can access it through this link, having the possibility of returning to the traditional interface at any time, as has been the case up until now on other Google platforms that have had redesigns of their respective interfaces.From YouTube they hope to receive the feedback that allows them to carry out the necessary improvements before extending the redesign of the interface to other users. The platform also highlights Polymer, the new Google framework with which the new interface has been developed, pointing out that thanks to it it will allow a faster development of the functions from now on. That means that we will see news at shorter time intervals than we are used to now.
In addition, with the new interface also comes the new dark mode, which can activate all those users who want to see their favorite videos in a more comfortable way, without highlights or flashes, highlighting the videos as is.
