YouTube is never a company to sit back and relax. It seems like every week there is something new going on with the video service. Now, YouTube has rolled out an update for its mobile browser app and its Android app on Google Play. This update offers a shiny new interface that should make finding on watching videos on the go that much more enjoyable.

The update on Google Play only supports 10-inch tablets, so all those 7-inch owners will have to sit this one out. The update adds a guide that makes it easy to watch your favorite channels and find new ones to enjoy. The layout of the guide makes it easy to understand why the larger amount of screen real estate was required to support the refreshed interface.

The update is available to download on all Android devices, but phones and smaller tablets will not notice much of a change. All devices will receive some bug fixes and performance improvements. Those are obviously not has fun as a redesigned interface, but they are important none the less.

As for the mobile web version of YouTube, that has received some big changes as well. The UI looks much more similar to the new desktop version of YouTube that was rolled out recently. It also includes new features designed to make finding new content to enjoy even easier.
