Without any publicity around it, YouTube rolled out a new logo for YouTube Studio, it’s separate forum where creators check insights for their content.
The new design is a smooth red hexagon with a play button in the middle, bearing much similarity with the YouTube Music icon. As of last week, iOS users were already getting notifications for the update and now thousands of users have already downloaded it. A recurrent criticism on Twitter is that the previously used distinctive gear design connotes ‘studio’ vividly when compared to this.
