YouTube v12.05 for Android pops up suggestions at the bottom while playing a full-screen video

15 February 2017 4

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.

Download the latest YouTube v12.05 from the APKMirror as the same hasn’t been officially rolled out in the Google Play Store.

This feature is good, but it will act as a distraction to the actual video we are playing. So, I don't think we really need this feature. Either way, we do get thumbnails at the end of the video to watch something new.


This is a welcome feature. However, I didn't understand if these suggestions will pop up as the video comes to an end or it will stay there since the very beginning.


There was earlier a feature where YT showed 4 suggestions as the video is ending, I think, like 10 seconds to the end. But the downside was that those 4 suggestions ate up the screen space even before the actual video ended. So, that was very bad.
