Chromium-based Edge has been hit by a new glitch when running
Google-owned YouTube. Some folks today noticed that YouTube
opens with the classic interface in Edge browser and the new
design is no longer available for some unknown reasons.
Google Meet, Google Docs and Google Drive were also marked
unsupported in Chromium-based Edge. Today, Chromium Edge users
have been confronted by a similar error informing them that
YouTube’s new design is not available in the new browser.
YouTube throws up an error message when trying to access it
from the new Edge. “Your browser is not supported. Try it
with the latest Google Chrome” reads the message. The message
recommends you to download Google Chrome or switch to any other
YouTube says it only supports Chrome, Firefox, Safari and (old)
Edge. What’s more surprising is that YouTube had no issues
until yesterday and this problem only popped up earlier today.
You can still go back to the YouTube homepage and browse the
outdated classic look of the streaming service.
Google or Microsoft hasn’t acknowledged the problem, but it
is likely to be another oopsie at Google’s end and it
should be fixed in the next few hours.
