YouTube Will Remove User Channel Backgrounds

Published by JesterMarch 2, 2013Blog4 Comments

Just read a blog post about the future of  our YouTube channels. New channels are coming and they’re without any functionality to add custom backgrounds. Instead, YouTube has decided to focus on channel art which is similar to what Facebook is using in their Timeline layout.

New YouTube Channel Layout Without Any Background


Now YouTube will have a more all-in-one look which makes our channels as we know it, disappear. This change is possibly a month away from being implemented on all YouTube channels. I guess it’s time to prepair some new “channel art” for you guys.

Post your thoughts about this new change in the comments below.

    I hate the new channel art! Old one gave much more customisation and made the page actually feel like your own. Now it just feels horrible!
