The YouTube icon is available in YouTube red, monochromatic near-black, and white monochrome.
If a background does not work with the YouTube red icon, or color can’t be used for technical reasons, go monochrome. The almost-black icon should be used for light multi-colored images. The white icon should be used on dark multi-colored images with a transparent play-button triangle.
YouTube icons should be a minimum of 24 dp in height online and 0.125 inches (3.1mm) in print.
The clear space requirement for the YouTube icon should be half of the icon’s width.
The YouTube icon can only be used when it links to a YouTube channel.
