YouTube to launch Online Store, Gboard 12.1 reveals Material You redesign

According to the reports, Google is following Apple TV and Amazon Prime Video to empower customers to subscribe to other streaming services using a YouTube “channel store.” According to the Wall Street Journal, YouTube is “prepared to release an online store for streaming video services and has reestablished talks with entertainment companies about taking part in the platform.”

This “channel store” as it’s recommended internally could release “as too soon as this fall,” with YouTube reports performing on this for “at least 18 months.” That is an inconceivably vast development period provided that YouTube TV already has this potential for HBO, AMC+, Showtime, and many others.

That said, the cord-cutting service is only present in the United States(US) and YouTube proper is presumably aiming for a wider launch. In fact, WSJ says YouTube’s sold point to companion is its vast scale around the world. It arrives as YouTube current rehabilitate its movie experience.

The voice is that the new YouTube channel store would offer amazing marketing for streaming services because consumers could watch trailers of shows or movies free on YouTube and then easily pay to subscribe to the service.

Meanwhile, contract conciliation is ongoing:

YouTube is discussing dividing subscription feedback with a streaming companion, although the way may vary all around for each partner, according to people recognized with the situation. For end users, the profit of subscribing via YouTube’s channel store is the easiest and stability of Google’s video-streaming infrastructure. YouTube probably has the best and most uniform video player.

That said, the mobile app is going to obtain extremely cramped. Apart from that last August, Google rolled out a handful of Material You increase to Gboard for Android, and a few more are now available or come to the keyboard, adding the shortcuts bar.

In this article, we discovered the latest version of an application that Google uploaded to the Play Store:

When we decompile these files in the case of Android apps, we’re able to see so many lines of code within that point out feasible future features. Keep in mind that Google may or may not ever deliver these features and our explanation of what they are maybe not perfect. We’ll try to on those that are near to being done, however, to present you how they’ll look in the terms of that they do deliver.

At the time, clicking the chevron icon in the top-left corner slides out so many tools, layouts, and shortcuts. The list today adds- Settings, Theme, Text Editing, Clipboard, GIF, Floating, One-handed, Translate, Share, and Sticker. There’s also the expend keyboard on foldable (but it is not available for tablets).

Gboard 12.1 is rolling out to the beta channel today and discloses work on a Material You redesign of that bar that a friend of the site RKBDI has successfully enabled. The corner button is still a circle but now uses a 3×3 grid icon.

Meanwhile, the shortcuts (or “access point” items as they’re referred to) are now housed in rounded rectangles that are very reminiscent of Material You (MD3) chips. It’s not too different from the Assistant voice typing UI on Pixel phones (as seen in the cover image above). The background of each item is lighter than the keyboard, which is more pronounced on colourful themes.


You can now have one more shortcut for a total of five in the bar, though Gboard is working on the ability to let users customize how many appear if they really only need one or two. However, the new maximum is due to Gboard removing the three-dot/overflow at the right and using the existing corner button for entry.

Google has redesigned this view with a more compact grid that’s no longer centred. It allows more functions to be easily added in the future, while the Text Editing layout is getting a Material You modernization of its own with rounded corners for each button.

Material You:

Another Material You update is settings. The main list is obtained larger, while MD3 toggles are now used throughout. But recently it’s not been confirmed yet when Gboard will widely roll out the Material You bar and other design modifications.
