According to screenshots from Twitter and Reddit, YouTube is experimenting with downsizing videos on its home.
New homepage design shown onimages is quite different from the current one. Videos are no longer divided into categories, fewer videos are displayed when scrolling, and thumbnails have noticeably increased. So far, users do not really like it. Some people complain that large sketches make it difficult to view the main page, while others say that it is very disorienting.
This is not funny, @YouTube. I’m sorry, but this is the worst update i’ve ever seen and now homepage is just unusable, i can’t look at thumbnails so big, my eyes are in pain right now. You can’t make everything gigantic, because now everyone behind my back can see my home page. pic.twitter.com/qejseeqdWU

The design is similar to the one used inmobile devices. The YouTube mobile app displays large images to make them more visible. The problem is that on the desktop everything looks too cluttered.
