To support upcoming content creators on its platform, Google-owned messaging app YouTube on Tuesday opened entries for NextUp 2019 with three new editions — NextUp for Artists, Women To Watch and Gamers.

YouTube’s NextUp, which was launched in India last year, provides creators with an opportunity to be mentored by production and channel development experts in new production techniques to further enhance their content.

After testing a host of new features for YouTube for desktop, the company has finally started to roll out a new design for its desktop and tablet homepage, which now features richer thumbnails and higher resolution video previews, media reports said.

YouTube now feels confident enough to debut two of them to the public: viewers can now assemble a queue of videos and will be able to manually tailor their channel recommendations. Sections have also been enlarged to feature eight videos at a time, up from five, Android Police reported on Friday.
