According to a Quick test earlier this week The main YouTube Music for Android website is now increasingly displaying outline-style icons.
This change starts at the bottom bar, with Home, Explore and Library slightly tweaking to suit the new style. The top app bar shows thinner cast and search icons. On the Library tab, the icons for downloads, playlists, albums, songs, artists, and subscriptions are updated.
Various overflow menus throughout the app have also been updated. Finally, this change modernizes the Now Playing screen with Like / Dissimilar, as well as modifying anything that appears when you tap Cover Art.
YouTube TV has yet to be updated, but the direction towards consistency and consistency is clear. With YouTube Music, the outline style doesn’t make a significant difference other than making the app feel lighter – and a bit more general. For some, the lines are a little too thin, but it doesn’t affect muscle memory. Visibility is improved in one respect because the stronger outline against a dark background is much clearer than the previous gray.
These outline style icons aren’t widely used yet, but they’ll show up for more YouTube music Android Users today after a server-side update. Try stopping and reopening the application.
