YouTube for Android updated with new fullscreen video player UI
YouTube for Android has received a new video player UI that now lets you like, dislike, comment, add to playlist and share when you are watching a video in the full screen mode. The autoplay, casting and closed captions option on the top remain the same, but the three-dot overflow button has been replaced by a settings gear icon.
The full screen mode also shows a separate ‘more videos’ shortcut with thumbnail preview on the bottom right side instead of showing a separate row on the bottom, which now shows up only when you press it or swipe up from the bottom.
The new YouTube video player user interface is now available only for Android users through a server-side change, so it could roll out the new UI for iOS users soon.
