More about YouTube
The official app of the popular video website YouTube is where you can find millions of videos. Search from the hottest music videos and see what’s popular in gaming, fashion, beauty, news, learning, and more. Subscribe to channels you love, create your own content, share with friends, and watch on any device.
With the new app design, it is easy to discover new content within the app. Long auto-generated playlists based on a topic by YouTube make it more engaging. Directly share a video from the app to social media. You can now copy a video link from the app and paste it if you want to watch a video from your browser.
The YouTube app has made it easy for users to create content from their mobile devices. Easily create or upload your own videos directly in the app. Engage with your audience in real-time with live streaming right from the app.
Use the main app to integrate your family members’ watching experience on the platform via the YouTube Kids app or a new parent-supervised experience on YouTube at my family.
Content creators can directly engage with their audience in real-time with live streaming from the app. Making it more fun and easy to keep your fans updated with what you are about to do on your channel. And from the app, you can join channels that offer paid monthly memberships and support their work.
If you like a video and want to share the input, just join the conversation with comments and interact with creators and other community members. Subscribe to a channel and keep up with your favorite creators with Posts, Stories, Premieres, and Live streams.
Don’t forget the premium service introduced by YouTube recently. Where you can watch videos uninterrupted by ads while using other apps, or when the screen is locked. You will have to buy a subscription for this but will get access to YouTube Music Premium as part of your benefits.
The most important feature of this app is that you can control playback with shortcuts. For example, swipe to close a video, and double-tap your finger to forward or backward a video.
You can use the YouTube app without signing in. However, recommendations on the app homepage will be more personalized to your taste if you use them while logged into your account. If other people also use your device you can delete or pause your watch history.
Sharing, Saving, and Uploading Videos
YouTube for Android offers a few ways to save, share, and keep track of videos. First, while you’re watching, you can use the “+” to add a video to a playlist, your Watch Later list, or your Favorites.
These lists are synced to your account, so you can access them from any of your devices. Alternatively, you can use Android’s share protocol to share any video via other installed apps on your device.
The YouTube app also lets you upload videos directly to your YouTube account. When doing so, you can add a video title, description, and tags, and you can set the video to Public, Unlisted, or Private.
