YouTube App Introduces Multitasking For iPad

YouTube is now providing users to take out most of what iOS 9 has to offer in multitasking functionalities for iPad Pro. Where on Tuesday, Google recently upgraded its YouTube app that offers support to its feature for Slide Over and Split View.

The multitasking feature of the Slide Over and Split View are provided with iOS 9 that only works with iPad by adding an increase in its productivity while giving it an extra feel as similar as the desktop.

The Slide Over will allow a user to activate a tray on the iPad's right side of the screen to get a task done fast without leaving the app, which means a user can quickly write something down in Notes while at the same time watch a video on YouTube.

The Split View is the crucial part of the multitasking feature simply because it enables a user to have two open apps simultaneously. Users can now work on their email or use Facebook to browse while having music videos being played on YouTube.

In addition to a third feature called Picture in Picture were also included in the release with iOS 9 last September, although not all of the apps have support. To enable a user to use Slide Over and Split View, other running apps have to also support the features while using YouTube.

The Picture in Picture feature allows users to resume having a video played in a thumbnail while on home screen or having an app run behind it, unfortunately it was not included with the update of YouTube.

The Slide Over can only be functional in all existing model of the iPad such as iPad Air and Mini 2, while the Split View is only functional with iPad Pro, Air 2 and Mini 2.

New multitasking features are most essential part when updating, where Google also worked on a few adjustments. When using an iPad in landscape mode, the home tabs that is now located in YouTube app's navigation bar, can be easily accessed when viewing a video horizontally.
