Google to Discontinue Classic Version of YouTube on Desktop

February 10, 2020 / Matt Southern

Google plans to discontinue YouTube’s older desktop interface as of March 2020, nearly three years after introducing the new version.
In August 2017, YouTube on desktop was overhauled with a material design-based interface. Until now, users still had the option to toggle back and forth between the old and new design.
YouTube has introduced many new features in the past few years, all of which are not available on the older desktop version. That’s why Google has decided to stop offering the now-outdated version of YouTube.
Starting next month, users will only be able to access the current version of YouTube. Those who are still using the older interface will begin seeing notifications advising them to switch to the new YouTube.
