YouTube has updated its mobile app with a new video player page look and new navigation gestures.
As part of this updates, the video player page now includes settings that are easier to access.
A whole suite of new gestures and options
A subtitle button now appears on the video player for easier access, while auto play switching is easier to turn on and off while watching a video.
YouTube has also included changes to the buttons, being easily rearranged “to make any action you take faster,” according to the YouTube page.
Some of the changes that come with the renewed player may also come on the desktop, as specified by Youtube.
Mobile users can more easily navigate with a list of video chapters, which allows users to skip to a specific section of a video. Similarly, users can switch between displaying the inverse time counter and elapsed time.
YouTube also adds a gesture to enter and exit full screen mode. Simply swipe up to enter full screen and down to exit. This gesture joins a double click to scroll the video.
In addition, YouTube introduces suggested actions that will cause users to rotate their phone or play a video in VR when they think you’ll have a better experience.
Finally, YouTube has highlighted bedtime reminders, which will remind you to reduce your screen time after a set time.
These updates have been launched in YouTube mobile applications since yesterday, but it is quite uncertain when the updates will be available for Romanian users.
