The news keep coming YouTube for Androidand in this new update we see how Google improves its full screen experience, giving the user more and new options when we use the mobile horizontally.
YouTube for Android has finally rearranged your fullscreen player for horizontal videos. The application launches a new interface which comes with an important feature that is surprising that it took more than ten years to arrive.

What’s New in YouTube Player
The main novelty of the YouTube player for Android is that we now find a new action bar just below the playbar. Many of these actions like “Like”, “Dislike”, “Save” or “Share” used to be in a panel that was displayed by swiping up. They are now directly accessible with only activate playback controls by touching the screen. They spare us the gesture of slipping.

How to Loop YouTube Videos or Playlists on Your Android
The second most important novelty is that now we can finally enable full screen comments. Late last year Google started allowing you to view comments in full screen, but so far view comments with the mobile in portrait mode first, then rotate the mobile to landscape mode . All we have to do is click on new comments button
We also see a new shortcut to see more videos on the right side of this new action bar. Touching the new shortcut we see that it opens the suggested videos panel which until now could only be seen by swiping up on the video. There we will see the options to subscribe to the channel, activate notifications and see suggestions.
Finally, and as a reminder, for a few weeks we can also see the description of a video in full screen. To do this, simply click on the title of the video and a panel with the description of the video, the number of “likes”, the number of views and the date of publication is displayed to the right of the video.
