YouTube’s Homepage Experiment

YouTube tests a new version of its homepage that adds many useful features:

Combined list – Merges your subscriptions, friend activity, and recommendations into one easier-to-scan list
Don’t miss a video – If a channel uploads 4 videos in a day, you’ll see all 4 – instead of just the latest video
Delete anything – Hover over any video you don’t want to watch and click ‘x’
Or just grey it out – Videos you’ve already watched will be greyed out – so even without deleting, you’ll know where you left off
Help me re-find stuff I just watched – Your homepage will include your recent likes and favorites so you can easily get back to them
Easy inbox – Links to your inbox (personal messages & comments) are front and center
Load much more – Watch older videos – all without leaving the homepage


YouTube wants to create a more comprehensive newsfeed that includes your actions and all the actions shared by your subscriptions and friends. Unfortunately, the homepage is no longer customizable.
