A new interface is coming to the YouTube mobile app. YouTube is bringing a new interface to the full-screen video player in the mobile app. Even if you ignore the first look, if you watch a YouTube video full screen on Android and iOS devices, you will notice the new changes.
The new interface of the YouTube mobile app will make it easier to like or dislike videos while watching videos in full screen. Viewing comments and sharing videos will also be easier than before, according to technology website Verge.
In the previous design of the interface, all of these features were under the original video player, which needed to be accessed with a swipe gesture. The new design features will be on top of the original player.
In the current design, the features can be easily used while watching videos in portrait mode. However, when you watch full-screen videos in landscape mode, there is a complication. The new interface features can also be easily used in landscape mode.
In addition, while in landscape mode, users can easily enter the comment section of the video. In the new design, if you tap the comment section button, the comments will appear next to the video. In the current interface, the comments can be seen next to the video player only when the comment section is opened in portrait mode and then in landscape mode.
The new user interface is coming to both the Android and iOS versions of the YouTube app, The Verge said. The update will be rolled out to all devices on these two platforms, the site said.
