YouTube app design update may axe the hamburger menu

Google has been tweaking its Android apps with the Material Design philosophy and some radical changes are in pipeline. For instance, a new build of YouTube app hints that Google will axe the famous Hamburger menu button.

The Android design guidelines always referred the Hamburger style menu as the Navigation Drawer. YouTube app design update brings more tabs instead of a navigation drawer. There are four tabs, Home, Trending, Subscriptions and Profile.

In past Google has changed the navigation menu animation several times before the final roll out. Since this is just another app build being tested out, we are not sure whether it is the final design.
