Awesome Tube, one of the most highly rated third-party YouTube apps on the Microsoft Store, is embracing Microsoft's Fluent Design with its latest update. The app has received a major visual overhaul, bringing more transparency alongside a minimalistic design that is present everywhere from the default "Trending" section to the video pages themselves (via Reddit).
Outside of the revamped design, Awesome Tube has added support for 21:9 ratio videos and the app also supports scrubbing to earlier portions of live videos. This update also brings the addition of new ads, but they can be removed with a one-time purchase of $4.99.
