YouTube is updating its mobile apps with a few new features that should make viewing and managing videos a little more comfortable, with new signals, updated member controls, and new features.
The new design is more smooth and comes with gestures to control the playback options. YouTube has rearranged the frequently used buttons and moved them to a prominent location, which, according to the company, will save time while taking action.
The new update will make getting in and out of full-screen mode as simple as a swipe of the finger. The new movement for the command allows users to swipe up on the video window to make it full screen and swipe down to exit and return to the standard video player without having to click on the increase and close buttons.
This feature allows users to navigate through the video using chapters, and they can jump forward to a particular section by seeing the chapters in a list view, as shown in the image below.
YouTube is adding more signs in addition to the double-tap to fast forward or rewind 10 seconds
Swipe up to enter full screen and down to exit.
Tap the timestamp to see how much time is counting down versus the time passed in a video.
YouTube has launched a new digital wellbeing tool that lets users set reminders at particular times to stop watching videos and go to bed.
The company is planning on going out similar features for the Youtube web as well.
