The latest update to YouTube includes a new 'Home' landing page, where you can take a look around and discover videos with recommendations and personal playlists based on your history. 'Subscriptions' is the new home for updates from the channels that you're subscribed to, as well as a new option being made available which lets you receive notifications once your favorite YouTuber uploads a new video.

'Account' is the last part of the new YouTube, where all of the videos you've uploaded are found, as well as your watch history and your playlists. All of these small changes to YouTube culminate in a much better application for video playback, especially with the latest update which allows for full-screen portrait videos.
