Whenever you are listening to music or watching YouTube videos, this tech giant always recommends that you switch to YouTube Music for a better Internet experience. According to 9to5Google, YouTube is currently testing some of its core functions called “listening controls”. Get more interesting streaming and viewing effects in the main YouTube app. When you play a music video, YouTube displays a small bar at the bottom of the video, saying “Show controls for listening”.
When you click this column, the title and channel name of the song/video will first be displayed in large text. There are various options at the bottom of the pop-up window. There are 10 second forward and back buttons on the sides of the two windows. The two arrows in front of them help you move the video. A little forward or backward. However, the interesting behavior is that the last button returns to the previous video, not the beginning of the current song. The following are the three main options, labeled as “like”, “save” and “speed”.
Although Like and Save retain their original purpose, only the Speed option will adjust the playback speed in steps of 0.25 to 2x. The controls are marked as “advanced” at the top of the page below the normal video window. It will play normally and still show the debugger. This new feature will also work when streaming content to the speakers.
This means that these control options are recommended only for advanced subscribers, however, this feature is only available for advanced users on iOS, not for the Android version of YouTube.With this in mind, this means that this is still an ongoing test of YouTube features and has only been launched on a few devices so far. The main process of the YouTube app gaining hearing control functions is beneficial to your YouTube Music app because, by better controlling the new features, users will be more motivated to switch to YouTube Music to listen to songs and play video clips.
So far, Google has even encouraged them to open the special applications included in the premium subscription. In addition, the recently released user interface of the app shows that some people are so familiar with listening to the audio on the main client that YouTube eventually gave up and created a simplified user interface in the app, just like how Google profited from it, encourage updates and delete ads.
