The YouTube app has recently added two swipe gestures that you may have accidentally discovered, as I did. (When you start using the new gestures, you're even more likely to have to employ the [YouTube454012] YouTube Take a Break feature .) I was happy and innocently diligent about YouTube and accidentally hit a new video. After a quick Internet survey, I discovered that YouTube added two new sweepstakes to make it easier (and stay longer in the app) to browse videos. Here's what happens.
Turn right, swipe left
When you watch a video, you can now turn left to see the next recommended video while a sweep to the right takes you back to the previous video you watched. The guests work no matter how you hold the phone – horizontally in full-screen or vertical with up Next videos below.
When you swipe to a video you've already started, YouTube remembers your location and begins you where you left off. That's the good news. The bad? Listings. Pre-roll ads appear when you swipe to the next or previous video if you have already started watching it or not, which means you will lose at least five seconds before you can skip the ad.
Double cranes still in force
Although the new oscillating reservoirs have been added, the double button holders remain intact. You can continue to double-click on the right and left sides of a video to skip over and back and forth, respectively. The first double tap jumps forward or backward for 10 seconds, and each subsequent double button adds another 10 seconds to skip.
