YouTube has reportedly started rolling out a tap control feature for Android and iOS users who are YouTube Premium subscribers.
Listening controls replace everything under the video window with a thin sheet of paper. Play / pause, next / back and 10 seconds rewind / forward are the main buttons, reports 9to5Google.
With the hearing controls, users of the YouTube app can also save new songs to a playlist if they prefer.
The feature is now available for YouTube Android and iOS users and will only be introduced for YouTube Premium users.
The YouTube app for Android users has already exceeded a whopping 10 billion downloads in the Google Play Store.
As the largest and best-known streaming platform in the world, it was always likely that YouTube would be the first “real” user-oriented Android app to reach such a download milestone in the Play Store.
Since the app is pre-installed on almost all devices, it is slightly strengthened and could even contain some activations from before the existence of the Play Store.
The company recently launched a new tool – Super Thanks – that allows users to tip their favorite creators on the platform.
