YouTube improves video playback with these new features.
YouTube is the application par excellence for viewing videos, present on the phones of Android users. Google has just announced a series of changes to the application, in its playback window to be specific, designed to make the playback of content in the application more comfortable for all users.
These changes to the playback window on YouTube have been released for Android and iOS users. This is not a radical change, but the positions of some buttons have been optimized, as well as the introduction of some shortcuts, so that the player is simpler and allows better use.

These are the new YouTube features
Some of the options we have for playing a video in the application have changed their position, making them more accessible. This is the case for subtitles, which we can access with the CC button located in the upper right corner, without having to open the top menu now. In addition, the automatic playback option (Autoplay) was focused on the screen, so that we can easily enable or disable it in the application.
YouTube also leaves us with chapters in the videos, a function that was made official months ago, although it is now available for all videos in the application. These chapters in the videos are designed so that we can move around the video more comfortably or go to a specific point that we want to see in it.

In addition, the application improves access to full-screen mode by looking at one of its open source alternatives. Since now, when we want to access full-screen playback, just swipe. It is not the only option, as a suggested function called Rotate is introduced, so that we can also access full-screen playback. This is one of the changes that many expected.
These changes on YouTube for Android were made official today. Their deployment has started, although you may not have these options yet, but you shouldn’t have to wait long before you can test them on your Android phone.
