    As with most companies, YouTube has tweaked its design over the years where it has evolved to better suit the needs of its users, and also to adapt to current trends. This is a good thing, of course, but if you still prefer the old and classic YouTube desktop interface, you might be interested to learn that YouTube will be killing it off this coming March.

    According to YouTube, “Back in August 2017 we launched a new look for YouTube on desktop that introduced material design and new features like dark theme (check out the blog from 2017 here!). Note – up until now, people still had the option to opt-out of the new experience and continue using the older version of YouTube on desktop.”

    However, the company notes that as a result of giving users the option, it meant that users were missing out on the new features and improvements of the newer design, and as such, the company has made the decision to phase out the old design in March.

    They will not stop changing youtube till they reach a point where you click on the single link and money start transferring from your account to their.
    All for the improvement of the users' experience.

    Probably not.
