Those who have been following social media websites like Google+, Facebook or Twitter might have noticed the news through ongoing chatter. If you want to get the new YouTube design right now, here is a simple trick to follow.

Once you do this, the new design would look like this.
The new design which is being tested comprises of 3 columns. Left column displays channel information for users. It includes links for channel videos, history, likes, subscription information and other information related to YouTube like trending or what’s popular.
The center or middle column contains user’s subscription. The right column includes recommended videos which are decided on the basis of past user activity on YouTube. Currently the change is visible to just homepage. The new design is not meant to be confused to previously introduced Cosmic Panda feature update. We would suggest first enabling the new design of YouTube and then trying the Cosmic Panda feature.
