They claim that it’s going to be the biggest redesign in the history of their company.

The new interface features a new playlist design, AutoPlay On/Off switch that controls whether you automatically go to the next video or not. Other than that, you can add videos to queue whenever you search for any video. The old comments section has been changed and now you can add video responses as well in the comments.
