youtube widescreen

As I was browsing YouTube today, I noticed something peculiar. As always, there are videos being watched right now and Promoted videos headlining the site.

Oddly enough, thumbnails of these videos are now being shown in a widescreen format. What I mean is this: before, thumbnails were perfect 4:3 squares, just like the videos they represent; now, they are 16:9 (or so) rectangles, an indication of things to come?
