YouTube introduced new options on its platform for a particular group of users. Now, after a small but significant change, they will be able to zoom in videos and with this, among other things, forgetting to download them or using other applications for this purpose.

Currently and according to a Macrumors publication, this capacity will arrive as part of a suite of features offered to premium subscribers. Recall that in recent weeks the company has launched new tools for these users, such as picture-in-picture mode.

For now, YouTube Premium users are those who can take advantage of the program that allows subscribers access entirely new features that are not fully prepared. This time, the call is to zoom in on a video on the screen, even in landscape mode.

If you are part of this user group, you can find the new feature in the YouTube app on iOS. Just tap your profile picture, then tap “Your Premium Benefits”. From there, you will find the “Try new features” page and enable YouTube pinch zoom. Of course, activation may take some time until you try this new tool.

Finally, the company announced that the test function will be available until September 1 and it may become a permanent part of the YouTube Premium package at some point.
