According to the latest update of the YouTube, the users are soon likely to get the content suggestion thumbnails while playing the full-screen videos. This feature is getting showed up in the most recent version of the YouTube app v12.05, however, only a few users have reported this and it seems like the things are still running at the server side.
Explaining you this feature, when watching a full-screen video, suggestions will pop up at the bottom of the video, giving you more ideas what to watch next. These videos show up as a preview of thumbnail and one can tap any video to bring into view.
This seems to be an attempt by Google to serve users more video suggestions if they’re bored with what they’re watching. Thus, the users will receive more and more options to see suggestions of the videos they might want to watch.
As mentioned already, the feature hasn’t been told by the wide amount of users, so, this seems to be a server-side update, and it will take some time to roll out for all the users.
Before this, YouTube enabled the double-tap gesture to jump 10 seconds forward and backward of the video. This feature is really helpful as it allows to playing the video quickly if you have missed anything 10 seconds back or you want to skip the video for the next 10 seconds.
