    YouTube has made a massive overhaul to its mobile app interface, removing its ‘Trending’ tab — a self-curated list of YouTube’s top videos (on a regional basis) at any given moment — in exchange for a new, long-in-the-works hub dubbed ‘Explore‘.

    “With Explore, you not only have access to Trending videos,” the company wrote in a support forum post, “but also to destination pages for some popular content categories like Gaming, Music, Fashion & Beauty, Learning.” Of course, YouTube operates standalone hubs for the aforementioned content categories. There will be two additional categories at the top of Explore as well — for News and Movies And Shows — while Trending will receive its own shortcut button as well. (This means that the Trending ranking isn’t going away altogether; it will still live within Explore).

    The new Explore tab will also more prominently display YouTube’s Creator On The Rise and Artist On The Rise shelves — which serve to spotlight emerging voices — by placing them above other trending videos.

    The Trending tab is cancer, no doubt Explore will get the same amount of attention from me - i.e none! ;)

    You are exaggerating. Cancer isn't as bad as "Trending".
