'Watch 3.0' is Live!

By The YouTube Team

Our new watch page is now a permanent fixture after being in beta mode since June. In the last few months, we've received lots of helpful suggestions from you and the version you see today - which we're affectionately calling "Watch 3.0" - contains many features based directly on your feedback:

-- You now have the option of viewing "Related Videos" in both grid and list style.
-- The new "More Videos From This Channel" section shows you a list of up to 30 other videos hosted on the same channel.
-- We condensed the video actions to the four that you care about the most: 'Share', 'Favorite', 'Add to Playlists' and 'Flag'.

Other changes include:

-- The video size is now larger.
-- You can now drag the slider to jump ahead anywhere in the video, without waiting for it to buffer.
-- When you switch to full screen mode, the video will continue from the point where you left off (the video will not start from the beginning).

Watch the October edition of 'YouTube News,' presented by your local funny news guy pzottolo, to see a summary of these new changes:
