Today, the mobile YouTube app ushered in an important update, introducing a series of new features, including new gestures to switch to full-screen view, Video Chapters, and more.

Naijatechnews.com understands that the most important update this time is a new gesture to enable or launch the full screen of the video, instead of clicking a button (or rotating the phone), you can now swipe up on the video window to enter the full screen, and swipe down To return to the standard player page . These gestures only work when sliding on the playback window itself, so don’t worry about being confused with the sliding gestures for exiting apps on iOS and Android.

There are also some new buttons on the video player: there is now a new closed caption switcher, which appears directly on the overlay menu, and a switcher that turns on or off autoplay video. You can also click on the timestamp of the video to switch between viewing how much time has passed and how much time remains.

The updated app also has the video chapter function that YouTube has been developing over the past few months, and there is a new list view that can display all chapters of the video, including a preview thumbnail.
