YouTube Watch Mobile page app UI

With a global community of two billion people on YouTube, we are always focused on making it easier for our viewers to watch and interact with their favorite videos. ⏪ 📺 ⏩ 👀

We get over 2 Billion people visiting YouTube each day, spending a total of 2.5B hours on the platform. People spend most of the time on YouTube's Watch page watching their favorite videos. As part of the YouTube Watch UX team, my responsibilities include Watch Navigation features focused on ways to empower people to curate and control how they watch and navigate between videos.


Recently I designed this new component called Engagement Panel as a part of YouTube's system design library. It is a reusable UI component that opens over the area below the player, allowing users to engage with rich content while watching a video. For more immersive experiences, the panel can be expanded to fullscreen on portrait mobile.
