YouTube Mobile Website Finally Gets An HTML5 Treatment

By 02:55 Sat, 10 Jul 2021 Comments

The mobile version of the popular YouTube website just got faster and touch-friendlier. It also got the HTML5 treatment all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users have been waiting for so long. What this means is YouTube videos will be of highest-quality possible.

So, pages will now load faster, controls will be more thumbable and there will be some features known from the website (such as query suggestions, the ability to create playlists and to designate "favorite", "like" and "unlike" videos from the device itself).

The YouTube team also promises to bring any improvements made on the desktop version of the site to its mobile version much faster in the future. A lot faster than those updates come to the iPhone- and Android-compatible native YouTube apps.

And here is a short video demonstrating the latest YouTube Mobile website version:

The revamped YouTube Mobile website is currently available in English only but translations in more languages should come over the next few months. To check it out just visit from your mobile phone's web browser.
