Apple introduced Split View with iOS 9 last year, making better use of its iPads’ screen. Google has finally updated YouTube to support Split View, allowing users to run two apps simultaneously side by side. The update has just arrived on the App Store.
YouTube’s iOS app now also supports another feature native to the iOS platform, Slide Over. Slide Over allows users to peek on another app for a bit by sliding that app onto the iPad’s display. How about Picture in Picture? Not for the time being. For now, you still can’t watch videos on the YouTube app in small app window at the corner of your screen on your iPad. Nevertheless, as usual, the Split View feature is only limited to the newer iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4, and the iPad Pro models and Slide Over will work on older iPad’s, but limited to the iPad Air and the second generation of the iPad mini.
The update also includes some minor bug fixes, such as the inability to open external links in video descriptions. You can check out the full list of the app update’s details right here.
