Enjoy Minimalist YouTube Home Page: Watch History Off
YouTube has unveiled a modification to its homepage functionality for users who have disabled their watch history. The alteration, which comes into effect immediately, involves a revamp of the video-sharing platform’s home feed presentation for individuals without a significant history of prior views. This change will offer a more simplified browsing experience, showcasing only the search bar and guide menu.
In a recent blog post, YouTube elucidated the adjustments: “Starting today, if you have YouTube watch history off and have no significant prior watch history, features that require watch history to provide video recommendations will be disabled — like your YouTube home feed.” Consequently, users in this category will notice a transformation in their home feed interface. It will display solely the search bar and the left-hand guide menu, omitting the usual assortment of suggested videos. This alteration is designed to facilitate more convenient actions such as searching, perusing subscribed channels, and exploring Topic tabs.
