The new YouTube app for Android has been released by Google. The new app now allows people to browse other videos while watching, to search and watch playlists, and to queue videos on connected devices.
To give multitasking a try, launch YouTube app and then:
- Swipe the video down with one finger to minimize it, or tap the arrow in the upper-left corner. You can now browse YouTube as usual.
- To maximize the video, tap it, or swipe up.
- To quickly close a minimized video, swipe it to the left or right. You'll notice the audio fades in tune with the motion -- nice touch.
