YouTube could allow its premium subscribers to zoom in on videos

Youtube is testing a new feature on its mobile app that will allow its premium subscribers to zoom in on any video. This is the only feature the video sharing giant is testing for now.

The new pinch-to-zoom feature for videos could work in both landscape and portrait mode. This is an opt-in experimental feature for now that premium users need to enable to experience the new feature, according to reports.

Premium subscribers can experience the pinch-to-zoom feature by going to the “try new features” section in the Youtube Settings menu on your phone or on the website.

There might be a delay in choosing to test the feature and get the pinch gesture at this time. But the feature is finally active, the user could potentially zoom any video up to 8x.

There are already ways to zoom in on videos on iOS and Android through various accessibility features and zooming in on videos on the Windows ecosystem is pretty easy too, but having a native zoom in feature is really handy for people. users.

Youtube says the new feature will remain in testing until September 1, which would give the company about a month to test the feature and gather feedback before rolling it out to a wider audience.

Last month, Youtube brought its wildly popular Picture-in-Picture mode to iPhone and iPad after first testing the feature with premium subscribers. The picture-in-picture mode feature has been available on Android devices for quite some time and has been extremely popular.
