Chennai: YouTube is focussing more towards the needs of every smartphone users. After introducing higher resolution video options on its iPhone last month, users can move 10 seconds forward or backward in any video, irrespective of whether the app is in full-screen mode or not.
This can be done by tapping twice on the right or left side of the screen to move forward or backward, respectively.
The new feature is on iOS as well as Android, but it is still not available for everyone as of now. Even though it is not clear when exactly this feature was introduced to the app, it is likely that it came along with the latest update recently.
The new update on iOS further allows users to control videos from the lock screen while casting to Chromecast devices, smart TVs, game consoles, or any other living room devices with the app.
YouTube for iOS users also get Play/Pause, Prev/Next and volume controls on the lock screen and Control Center as well with the latest update.
Navigating through videos on small screen devices was really a tough one for the users. This new method will surely make sure that the users get a new way to move through the video timeline.This new navigation method is likely to be useful for most users who had to struggle while browsing through their favourite videos.
