YouTube apps for Android, iOS updated with pic-in-pic and playlist-search functionality

YouTube’s updated its apps for both Android and iOS, enabling multitasking to a certain degree by adding two new features to both: a function similar to “picture-in-picture” as well as a new set of playlist search tools.

The first feature allows users to view videos “just like picture-in-picture” in YouTube’s words, while searching for other videos to view next. Just tap any video that’s playing and it drops down to the lower-right corner of the screen, from where it can be restored by being swiped up, or gotten rid of by being swiped left or right. With this feature, the folks behind the updated apps appear to be taking a page from Samsung, which, in its latest Galaxy smartphones, allows for “pop-up play” of video files in little windows. (Hey, either way, it’s still a good idea.)

As for the new playlist search tools, well, um, they allow users to search for playlists (through an improved user interface)! Oh, and users can also make use of a new “play all” button to enjoy an entire slew of videos in one sitting.

Download and enjoy!
