YouTube’s refreshed mobile player has more streamlined controls


YouTube is rolling out some updates for its video player page on mobile devices, including streamlined controls, a couple more gestures and suggested actions. The closed captions button and autoplay toggle are now directly on the player. YouTube says it simplified the player’s look by rearranging buttons, while the controls should be more responsive.

You’ll be able to go into full-screen mode by swiping up and exit by swiping down — that doesn’t seem to be the most useful feature as your video changes display mode when you rotate your device anyway. To switch between how long is left in a video and how much time has elapsed, you can simply tap the timestamp.
