Screen_Shot_2015-05-13_at_9_43_58_AMIf you have a pair of sharp eyes and watch cat videos on YouTube a lot, you may have noticed today that the font used on Google’s video streaming website has changed. It is now Roboto, subtlety different from the previous font—Arial.

Roboto is the official type family used for Android. The font comes in several weights but the one Google has gone with is slightly lighter than what users may be used to compared to the Arial font. This will surely lead to some complaints about it being harder to read, but I think it looks fine, and going for consistency across platforms is logical.

The company previously tested the change with a small group of users, so they at least have data to back up their decision.

Have you noticed the new font? What do you think about it?
