The YouTube has dedicated app on iOS and Android. Yet, some people do consider using the browser’s version of YouTube on tablets for quick access. When you do so, the website will be optimized for computers and require a mouse pointer to precisely access the feature.
The problem will no longer exist as the developers have rolled out a new update for these devices. As spotted by Android Police, it will enable bigger buttons. Instead of having to connect a Bluetooth mouse to your iPad or a Chromebook, you will be able to point the buttons and minimize or maximize a video.
The three-dots that is often found under the menu is always there. It helps people who don’t have a pointer. Originally, it was designed in such a way that only when hovering on top of it, you will be able to access the three dots and more options. It is a saving grace because not every time additional peripherals will be kept connected to tablets.
Chromebooks are usually equipped with a keyboard and mouse but many of them are touchscreen devices. If you are not using the YouTube app but rather browsing it on Chrome browser in flipped mode, this update should be helpful. Besides, it removes the need to have the app open always and continue with your videos on a browser as you would do on a PC.
