Answer this: what is there to look forward to for YouTube?
Even though the company has come up with many features for its users now, it still is coming up with new features for better user experience. The video-sharing platform still has more cast-related features in the works.
German blog site SmartDroid has spotted what seems to be an experimental feature that will be rolling out to Android users. This turns out to be a remote control to YouTube mobile app while users cast to bigger screens.
In the meantime, users can only pretty much use the YouTube app tp pause, play, and adjust the volumes up and down while you are casting to a bigger screen. The updated controls only show a directional pad that makes it easier for users to browse videos as well as quicker access to playback quality and captions settings.
At the end of the day, the majority of the people do not prefer to use their voices to search for almost anything. But there are situations, like this one, where it can be very helpful. Don’t you use that all apps get this feature, though?
