YouTube has been around for a long time. But even after billions of views, the platform continues to evolve. There are more tools than ever for creators, and the viewing experience has also received many improvements. Today, YouTube is bringing a new feature to its Premium subscribers, but it will only be available for a limited time.
YouTube’s new pinch-to-zoom feature will allow users to pinch in a video while it is windowed. To be clear, this isn’t about adjusting the size of the picture-in-picture window; it’s actually adjusting the video itself. In addition to zooming in and out, users can move around inside the frame if they wish. It’s quite unique, and some might benefit from being able to watch videos in this way.
The landscape has changed radically since the arrival of digital video on the Internet, and it has forced all players in the space to evolve. YouTube is still a big part of it and it’s had to adapt. The company has introduced features like higher resolutions, better streaming technologies, and most importantly, improvements for various apps on different platforms. While ensuring that the platform is safe to use.
More recently, YouTube has features introduced which borrow and compete with competitors like TikTok. While it could be a simple change, it could easily be something that takes off. If you want to try the new pinch-to-zoom feature, make sure you subscribe to YouTube Premium, go to the source link below, sign up for experimental features, and enjoy. Remember that this feature is a limited release. YouTube said it will be available until September 1. What happens after that is anyone’s guess.
