Youtube has released an update to its mobile app and it might make you happy. What? It’s going to make you happy! This new feature allows you to skip the video by ten-second increments. I know my grammar seems big, I’m just really excited!
By just double tapping the left or right edge of your phone, you can now skip 10 seconds forward or backward in a video or even to move in 20-second or 30-second intervals if you are fast enough.
A similar feature — a 5 second skip is also available on the browser version of YouTube; just hit the left or right arrow while the video is playing.
So say hello to skipping boring parts of videos!
