How To Fast Forward and Rewind a Video in The YouTube App


I recently noticed that I could fast-forward
and rewind a video on YouTube by just double
tapping. Though, there’s no official announcement
yet regarding this feature.

Instead of moving the red line counting while
watching a YouTube video to forward and rewind,
you can fast-forward and rewind a video for both
Android and iOS YouTube App by just double-
tapping. It’s very simple and straight-forward.. 

How To Fast Forward and Rewind a Video in YouTube App

==> Launch your YouTube app (Android/iOS)
==> Open a video in full-screen mode or normal
==> Double tap on the left side of the screen to
rewind, and you will go back 10 seconds and
identically doing it on the right side takes you

That’s all. 

The latest YouTube app has been officially rolled
out. Just head-over to Google Playstore to
update your YouTube app and also on iTunes if
you are an iOS user.
In addition, if you are an iOS user, updating your
Youtube app should also bring along the
convenient new lockscreen controls for casting

Some problems with the skip feature have already
been reported. Many users claim that it slows
down the interface and the full-screen toggle.
Hopefully, these bugs should have been fixed, as
it is a nice little feature to have.

Have you tried rewinding and fast forwarding a video in the YouTube app?
