SAN FRANCISCO: Video streaming platform YouTube is testing the “Add to Queue” feature for its Android and iOS apps.
This feature is already available in the website version of YouTube.
According to 9to5Google, when the feature rolls out, it will add a new “play to end of queue” option to the top of the list in the three-dot overflow menu next to videos.
After selection, YouTube creates a queue at the bottom of the user’s screen.
You can drag this panel to rearrange the display order, or swipe left to remove it.
When the user plays something, it is added to the queue and can be undone. According to the report, this feature (“Watch to Watch Lineup”) is prominently advertised as a “premium feature.”
Now “save for later” or “save to playlist” is a way for users to get back to something they don’t want to see right away.
To test the new Queue feature in the Android or iOS app, users can tap their profile avatar in the top right corner and click[設定]go to[新しい機能を試す]must be clicked.
YouTube Queues will be available for testing on Android and iOS until January 28, the report says.
