YouTube's New Android Splash Screen Animation

(CTN News) – When you first launch the YouTube app on your mobile device, it is likely that you will see a static splash screen, showing only the YouTube logo.

However, the company has recently been working on a new loading animation and startup sound in order to improve the user experience.

The change was rolled out a while back on Android TV, and now, some users are starting to notice the flashy new design in the YouTube app for Android, which was released earlier this week.

I must say that it has taken Google a considerable amount of time and effort to come up with a modern three-second intro for YouTube that appears whenever you open the Android TV app.

In November last year, YouTube made a quick loading animation available to users of its TV app on Android devices. Now, this animation has started appearing to some users of their favorite Android smartphones with the YouTube TV app.

Upon opening the YouTube app on their Android phone and on their Twitter account, Android users were greeted by the new splash screen (via 9to5Google).

Even though the intro appears very similar to the one you have seen on the big screen, complete with a seek bar animation, there are some differences to keep in mind.

According to reports, there is no chime on the smartphone version, and it appears to be a second shorter than the one made for the TV app version.

In spite of the fact that it makes your brand uniform across all of your apps, it still makes you wait an extra second before you can watch the video that you opened the app for in the first place.

However, you can take comfort in knowing that the animation will only be displayed on a cold launch of the app, so you won’t be seeing it on a regular basis.

In the case of the user who spotted the new splash screen first, he or she was using YouTube version 18.16.33 at the time, which is a beta version of the app currently in beta.

We were not able to reproduce the intro animation in our own testing despite updating to a newer beta version, which indicates that it may be a server-side issue. If you would like to give it a try, you can sideload the update from APKMirror.

Otherwise, you’ll have to wait for YouTube to push the update out through official channels to your phone, which could take some time.
