youtube-logo-200All video publishers with YouTube profiles have now been converted to the new “One Channel” design. This shouldn’t be a surprise, though: YouTube started teasing the new look back in February and promised a few weeks ago that the full conversion would be happening today.

One Channel adds a number of customizations to YouTube profile pages, including

  • showing a specific channel “trailer” only to viewers that aren’t already subscribed to your channel
  • adding an image to serve as “channel art” at the top of the profile page
  • organizing videos and playlists into customizable sections

Here’s a screenshot of iJustine’s profile (she’s one of YouTube’s most popular users) showing some of the new features.

YouTube says its creators that opted in early to One Channel have seen a 20 percent increase in visits to their channels and an (unspecified) increase in subscribers, too.
