YouTube is testing a new feature, you can also zoom the video, know the details
YouTube is testing a new mobile app feature with its premium subscribers that allows them to zoom in on any video. A media report has revealed that the latest opt-in enables pinch-to-zoom gestures for experimental videos. Let us tell you that this feature works in both portrait and full-screen landscape view.
According to the company, the Zoom feature will be in testing until September 1, giving YouTube about a month to take user feedback and test things out.
To enable Pinch to Zoom, open YouTube’s Settings menu on your phone or from the website. As long as you have a YouTube Premium subscription, you’ll find a “Try two features” section. Where now you will only see the zoom function.
It will still take time to get into the test and use these pinch to zoom gestures. Once activated, you can zoom in up to 8x.
There are several ways to zoom in on YouTube content with different accessibility functions on Android and iOS, and it’s apparently much easier to do so in a desktop browser.
But it is necessary to have it as an option in the mobile app. Last month, YouTube rolled out picture-in-picture mode for iPhone and iPad after first testing it among premium subscribers. This feature already exists in Android
