YouTube developers have added 15 more languages to the video-sharing website in order to get more users on to the site. With this move, the total number of languages supported by YouTube has climbed to 76.
Some of the languages added in this installation include Azerbaijani, Armenian, Georgian, Khmer, Burmese, Nepali, Punjabi, Sinhala, Macedonian among others.
According to YouTube, it has the native languages of over 95 per cent of internet users covered. These 76 languages are for site navigation only. Choosing any one of them will only translate the website links, buttons and text into the selected language. There is caption support for over 165 languages.
Just yesterday, YouTube started showcasing its new design and layout. A few changes to the new interface have been listed on Google System like the new design will replace the solid control bar with a gradient and rather simplifies icons. A few tweaks have also been made to the menus. Animations have been altered and will now offer a more subtle visual flair. The new player will also feature bigger and bolder icons. Toggles for autoplay and annotations have been given a better look and drop-downs for speed and quality are replaced by mobile-inspired menus.
