Google has launched the new 2.0 version of their YouTube app that now allows you to flick a video you’re watching to the lower part of the screen and continue browsing YouTube. This allows you to have the video running while at the same search for something else on YouTube. On the iPhone, this only works in portrait mode while on Android, were able to get this to work in both portrait and landscape modes.
With the swipe of a finger, you can watch a video at the bottom of your screen while you keep exploring. Think about it this way–you can watch a video about making the perfect fried chicken while searching for homemade salted caramel sauce recipes. You can always go back to full screen with a swipe up so you never lose your place, or swipe right or left to dismiss the video. Just try to not drop your phone in the sauce.
