Google has massively launched a new feature for the YouTube mobile app, which it began testing back in May.
Speech about controls Listening controls. In the Russian-language version of YouTube, these are “Audio Player Control Buttons”. When this menu item is activated, all the classic controls under the video window are replaced with others.
In particular, you will get a start / pause button, switch to the next and previous video or track, buttons to rewind for 10 seconds forward and backward, the ability to like, save the video to a playlist and a button to control the playback speed.
These controls are initially focused on listening to music, but they can be useful in other situations as well. For example, when listening to podcasts. In addition, in this mode, the buttons are elementary much larger, and for someone this mode may be simply more convenient.
It remains to add that such elements are only available to YouTube Premium subscribers.
