7 Latest Features on YouTube to enhance Video viewing experience

The largest online video sharing site YouTube is offering several new features that will enhance your experience. Some of them are listed below.

1. Playlist Bar: YouTube has introduced “Playlist Bar”. This is a control bar containing different videos you like. When you view a playlist, recommended videos offered by YouTube on its home page, videos you have subscribed for or your favorite ones, the “Playlist Bar” appears at the bottom of your window. It helps you to view your favorite ones at a go and select them easily to watch next. It eliminates unnecessary back and forth jumping to different pages.
