Next time you log into your YouTube app, you may feel like things look a little bit different because YouTube has been rolling out some UI design changes to the platform. And that includes features like pinch to zoom, which allows you to focus on one little part of the video. Like you can just pinch and zoom the video like you would do on an image on Instagram. And you can focus on one part of the video, say, right side corner of the video. Let’s say that’s an information you want to focus on. You can do that. I think it’s a useful feature. And you can even think of this feature when you create content for your audience. You can say something like you can pinch and zoom if you want to focus on the number on the right side or something like that. So something to think about. And the other feature is called Ambient mode, which adjusts the background of the app based on the color of the video, which is also a nice touch because it’ll look nice to the audience.
