YouTube is arise a new gestures on Android to simplify video scrubbing

Youtube take shape to be testing easier way to skip to a specific moment in a video without having to aim precisely for the progress bar.

The gesture permit to scrub through a video by long-pressing anywhere on the video. After that you need to put your finger across the screen to jump to a certain scene. However, it’s a more reliable way to skip to a part of the video that you’d like to see. Than the current method, where you’ll need to tap in order to reveal the progress bar, hold the screen. And then slide your finger along the line to move forward and backward in a video.

Moreover, YouTube used to permit users to tap anywhere on the seek bar to skip to a specific point. Last year, however, that capability was ditched following complaints that a single tap to move the seek bar frequently led to accidental taps. The new slide-to-seek gesture fixes the problem spawned by that move. When triggered, the gesture causes a pop-up message to take shape on the display. Which is telling you to “slide left or right to seek”.

Further, another nifty gesture that YouTube is rolling out allows you to jump to the next or previous chapter in a video by double-tapping on the display using two fingers. And if the action is performed on the right side of the screen, video player skips to the next chapter. Otherwise, it jumps back to the previous one.

Last but not least. it seems like these new capabilities are rolling out as a server-side update for now. The slide-to-seek gesture is available on some of the best Android phones running YouTube’s version 16.31.34 beta while the other gesture is live for some on version 16.31.35 beta.
