YouTube has revamped its mobile apps, which now include video editing tools and make it easier for users to discover content.
The update introduces three new tabs: Home, Subscriptions and Account. The Home tab, for instance, enables users to explore and discover videos with recommendations based on the user’s watch history, as well as offers personalized playlists. The Subscriptions tab, on the other hand, allows users to find videos from their favorite channels and creators. Plus, users can tap the bell icon on their favorite channels in order to get notifications as soon as a new video is posted. Lastly, users can leverage the Account tab to check out their playlists, watch history and all uploaded videos.
It is also important to note that the revamped app enables users to watch full-screen, vertical videos with just a single tap. Additionally, users can now edit videos directly within the app, as YouTube has unveiled a new set of video creation tools, including a trim feature, filters and the ability to add music to videos.
“If you watched a YouTube video recently, chances are you did it on your phone or tablet. That’s because today, more than half the views on YouTube happen using mobile devices,” YouTube said in its announcement. “So to bring you an even better mobile experience, we’re updating the official YouTube apps – making it easier than ever to find videos you love and create them, too.”
At launch, the updated app is available on Android devices and will soon be available on iOS too.
