YouTube Testing Queueing System on Its iOS and Android Apps.
Are you a YouTube Premium subscriber looking for a way to easily queue up your favorite videos on the go? Well, you’re in luck! YouTube has recently started testing queueing system on iOS and Android devices.
For those unfamiliar with the feature, the queueing system allows users to create a temporary playlist of videos by adding them to a queue. This feature has been available on the web for quite some time, but it’s exciting to see it finally make its way to mobile devices.
To use the feature, simply tap the “Play last in queue” button located in the three vertical dot menu that appears on video thumbnails. This will add the video to the bottom of your queue, or create a new queue if you’re not currently watching a video. Once the current video ends, the app will automatically start playing the next video in the queue. You can also rearrange or remove videos from the queue as desired.
However, it’s important to note that this feature is only currently available for YouTube Premium subscribers who opt-in to the test. The test is set to run until January 28th, and it’s unclear at this time if the feature will eventually be made available to non-paying users. Additionally, the feature may not be fully polished yet as some users have reported issues with adding videos to the queue.
Overall, it’s great to see YouTube bringing more features from the web to its mobile apps. As someone who frequently uses the queueing system on the desktop, I’m excited to see it being tested on mobile devices and hope to see it roll out to all users in the future.
