YouTube added to the Android application an experimental feature that allows you to increase the video player image. A change in the size of the video by the pinch to zoom video team on the sensor display is available only to YouTube Premium subscribers.
The new function allows not only to change the size of the video, but also to move it to see different parts of the image and to freely change the screen orientation from horizontal to vertical and back. By default, the function is inactive. To turn it on, the subscriber of YouTube Premium needs to open his profile in the application and activate the scale in the settings. It may take some time to start the function, but once enabled to increase the image to eight times.
The new YouTube functions were previously tested by beta testers and random users, but since 2020, experimental facilities have become available to Premium subscribers, and they are now offered other new functions: simplified playlist management and voice search in the browser. The scale is available until 1 September and is maintained only by Android devices.
