YouTube app for iOS is now being updated (version 11.10) with some intuitive features that will help users multi-task like a breeze. These include the high-in demand Split View and Slide Over functionalities. It's however worth noting that the feature will be exclusive to Apple's iPad lineup.
Incidentally both these features namely the Split View and Slide Over were integrated onto the iOS 9 when it was initially released. Apparently these nifty features allow users to not only jump to other apps but also do something else on the YouTube app itself despite watching a video on it.
The Split View feature that is reported to be incorporated onto the YouTube app will allow users to run tow apps side by side. On the other hand, the Slide Over feature is simply for jumping onto other apps for a while and do some bit of multi-tasking.
Interestingly enough, the YouTube app for iOS isn't getting the Picture-in-Picture functionality which allows them to view video in separate small tabs at the corner of their screen. Apparently the Slide Over feature will work only on the original iPad Air and iPad Mini 2 whereas the Split View works both on iPad Air, Mini and Pro models.
Apart from these the app is also moving the Home Tabs into the Navigations Menu. This is however applicable for the Apple iPads in Landscape mode. The new update is bringing a fix to a notorious bug that prevented user from opening URLs in the video descriptions.
