Google Improves YouTube App for Apple iOS Devices

Google has updated the YouTube app for iOS with several fixes and improvements on iPad and iPhone. One of the most useful updates is the addition of Search to History in your private Library. You need to be logged in to make use of this new feature that allows users to search by any keyword or phrase and see results from previously watched videos.

We suggest turning off spell check though, as many YouTube channels and titles are not part of the internal iOS dictionary, making a search more cumbersome than it needs to be.

The YouTube app update also fixed that frustrating bug that loses your place in the Home feed after watching a video in full screen. I seem to remember this happening but couldn’t replicate before updating the app for iPhone.

Another bug that’s been squashed had to do with using headphone buttons to Pause and Play videos. The updated app now allows volume control, Pause and Play on not just Apple Earpods but other brands as well. I tested with a pair of Bose SoundSports and all controls worked just fine.

And, the update now allows users to rewind or skip forward by 10 seconds with a double-tap on the left or right side of the video player. Android users also got that improvement in the latest update.

The Version 12.09 YouTube iOS app is a 114MB download that’s available free, of course, from iTunes or the App Store.
