YouTube has started testing its queuing system on iOS and Android. This feature has been available on the web for years and appears in the YouTube app under certain circumstances. Anyone who controls his Chromecast on their phone may be aware of this feature, as are those who use the YouTube Music app. Opting into testing allows you to add videos to stacks that act like temporary playlists.
Once you’ve turned this feature on (we’ll show you how to do that in a moment), you’ll see a new[キューの最後を再生]You will have access to the button. Tap it and the video will be added to the bottom of the queue. Or, if you’re not currently watching a video, a new queue will be created. When the video you are watching finishes, the app will start playing the next video in the queue and continue playing to the end. You can also rearrange and remove videos in your queue. Closing the player by completely exiting the app or tapping the ‘x’ button in the bottom bar will clear the queue (although the app may warn you before doing so).
When I opened the app on December 24th, I saw a screen that said the feature was ready to be tested, and a button to turn it on. (YouTube said it began rolling out the feature earlier this month. android police When 9to5Google, but the popup never appeared until today. ) If you don’t see that screen and you’re a Premium subscriber, you can manually enable it by tapping your profile picture in the top right corner.[設定]>[新機能を試す]Go to[キュー]scroll to[試してみる]Tap the button.
According to its settings screen, the test is available until January 28th.
The test isn’t necessarily a sign that free users will be able to queue up videos any time soon, as YouTube’s picture-in-picture test for iOS is months before the feature rolls out. Done. I also noticed that this feature isn’t exactly polished right now — the app failed to add videos to the queue at one point. Still, I’m thrilled to have this feature on my phone. It’s something I use on my desktop almost every day, and the fact that it’s become the testbed for YouTube Premium hopes one day I’ll be able to rely on it in the app as well.
Update December 24th at 5:56pm ET: Added context that the YouTube Music app already has a queuing system.
