YouTube v13.01 continues development on dark mode, may enable swipe-to-skip ads, and relocates autoplay setting [APK Teardown]

Friday, January 12th, 2018

YouTube just took a big version jump from v12.49 to v13.01, but you probably won't notice a lot of changes if you're just tapping around. In fact, this update appears to be pretty average for for most of YouTube's releases, which usually include a couple tweaks here and there, and sometimes some interesting material for a teardown – and this update has both. You'll find a new page in the Settings screen for autoplay options, and a teardown turns up some inspiring progress on a dark mode and possibly an adjustment to the ad-skipping experience.

YouTube is testing autoplay videos on the home page, but you can turn them off

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

Autoplaying videos are the devil. I can't say how many times in a single week I have to turn off the "autoplay" toggle on YouTube's queue so it doesn't move from the video I'm watching to what it thinks I want to see next. (Why isn't this a universal setting, YouTube, why?!) And now it looks like YouTube is testing another way to annoy you with autoplaying videos on your home screen.

Chrome 64 will make sure you never have to hear autoplaying sounds again

Friday, September 15th, 2017

Autoplaying videos are among the most annoying web trends of recent years, bombarding you with unsolicited content when you least expect it. Chrome 63 (currently on the dev and canary channels) on desktop recently gave users the ability to mute certain websites permanently, and there's a special toggle in the works so you can ensure they stay quiet. In the upcoming Chrome 64, both on mobile and desktop, Google is introducing even stricter conditions that should stop unwanted audio from ever playing automatically.

Friday, September 15th, 2017

Autoplaying videos are the scourge of the internet sometimes. Not only are they incredibly annoying, but they also waste precious data allowance and battery life. Chrome on desktop is pretty good at stopping videos from autoplaying unless they're muted, and in Chrome 64 for mobile Google will be introducing more consistent behavior that puts the user back in control.

The new rules will allow a video to play automatically if one of three conditions are met.

Google rolling out auto-playing video previews in Search

Saturday, August 19th, 2017

No one likes auto-playing video, but auto-playing previews can be helpful in certain cases. Google recently rolled out video previews on the YouTube desktop site, allowing people to hover over a video to see a glimpse of the contents. Now the company is rolling out video previews on its mobile Search.

Google Search already shows a carousel of related videos on some searches, especially ones with large amounts of video results (like tutorials, reviews, etc).

Google app starts autoplaying in-line videos and adds toggle to turn the feature off

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017

Back in March, Cody discovered hints of the Google app adding video previews and autoplay functionality. Since then, we didn't hear anything about the feature or spot any signs of it until today when reader Tycho pointed that there's a new "Video" section in the Google app's settings.

I've checked all my devices, ranging from a Galaxy S7 Edge on the latest Google app beta to the Nexus 7 (2013) which I rarely update and is still on version 7.3.19.21 of the Google app from many moons ago: they all have it.
