YouTube Introduces Listening Controls Feature
According to 9to5Google, the YouTube Android and iOS users can now use the listening controls feature. According to the report, the feature is exclusively available to YouTube Premium subscribers. It is currently available to users in the United States. To use the new feature, go to the upper right corner of the YouTube video and click the three-dot icon. From the list of options at the bottom, choose ‘Listening Controls.’
The new Listening Controls widget will replace everything that appears at the bottom of YouTube videos within the Android and iOS apps. It has controls for playing and pausing videos, moving to the next one, and returning to the previous one. You can fast-forward or rewind 10 seconds of video, and you can even save it to a playlist.
