According to online reports, several users have reported on Reddit that the YouTube users have the ability of forwarding or rewinding videos for 10 seconds on their apps through double-tap gestures, irrespective of whether the app is in full-screen mode or not, by simply tapping twice on the right to Forward or left to Rewind.
However, according to reports by The Next Web, the new YouTube feature isn’t yet available to everyone.
It’s also not certain of when the feature was introduced, but several reports however show it’s quite possible that it was included in the recent YouTube updates, that started rolling out earlier last week.
According to NDTV news, the YouTube app’s version 12.04 update on iOS further allows users to control videos from the lock screen while casting to Chromecast devices, smart TVs, game consoles, or any other living room devices with the app.
Last month, YouTube also launched an in-app messaging service on Android and iOS which is limited to Canada that allows users to share content such as text, videos and more. In addition, they can invite more users in a chat and even like comments.
