Google regularly releases some new features for YouTube. Sometimes those are useful features and sometimes not.

Google has announced five new features for YouTube Premium members. Some features are already available and some features will be available soon.

Now you can add any video to your play queue. This feature was previously available on the web only but is now available for phones and tablets as well.

Queue Videos

YouTube is adding an enhanced bitrate version of 1080p HD on iOS. No word on Android at the moment.

Better Quality on iOS

This new feature lets you continue your video on another device. If you left a video on your PC, you can play it on your phone from where you left off.

Resume on other devices

This feature allows the app to automatically download recommended videos when your device is connected to WiFi. You can also turn it off.

Smart Download

If you host Google Meet, all attendees will be able to watch the YouTube video together via Meet Live Sharing. It will also soon be coming to iOS via SharePlay.
