In order to execute this new feature on the YouTube app, you have to double tap either on the right or left side of the screen while watching a video. Double tapping on the right side will skip 10 seconds forward and tapping on the left side will bring you back 10 seconds before. Tapping four times will skip 20 seconds. 6 times for 30 seconds and so forth, that is if you are fast enough.
The new feature is available on the latest version of the YouTube app on the Google Play Store, version 12.03 to be exact.
