    In select countries where the YouTube Red service is not available, certain videos on the YouTube mobile app are available to download for offline playback….. Thanks for watching 🙂

    Thanks but i have a question , what does it mean getting recommended videos unrelated to what you actually watch , does it mean that someone else is using your private YouTube channel? Thanks

    That was very good. I knew most but you did teach me about the 360. My kids got me a VR, I think it was more for them than me?. Now I know exactly how to find what I'm looking for and just pop it in! Cheers

    There's a big problem on tapping twice on a Utube vedio in android, if set up bouble tapping on the screen will bring up the magnifier, the screen will zoom in . By pinching the screen can control the zoom function. Very useful for seeing people's faces in a crowd far more usfull than jumping forward. Can also see what comarnds are being used on the browser if description is a bit vauge on a instructional vedio

    Great tips dude. The last one is very helpful for me as my nephew uses my tablet wnen he comes over and watches loads of football (soccer) videos. Bless him! Lol! 🙂

    I think the offline video saving feature doesn't require you to have YouTube Red services. Because I can download videos into my device and watch them while offline without having to buy Red service from YouTube. It is worth mentioning that music videos cannot be downloaded to the device as YouTube secures it.

    Great to see Westworld Season 2 trailer being featured on TechGumbo though!

    Good stuff man! almost everyone of these features I will put use!! I can't believe I was clueless about the forward & rewinding feature. Very aggravating trying to do so with a finger. While using the little red line! Grrrrr. ; )

    Instead of moving your phone around watching 360 videos you can just swipe the screen left, right, up and down; same as if you have the VR box on.
    Great video never noticed the double tap before makes skipping soooooooooo much easier. Thank you!
