Some of the options we have when it comes to playing a video in the application have changed position, being now more accessible. This is the case of Captions, which we can access with the CC button located at the top right, without having to open the top menu now. Also, the automatic playback option (Autoplay) has been focused on the screen, so that we can easily activate or deactivate it in the app.

YouTube also leaves us with chapters in the videos, a function that was made official months ago, although it is now when it is made available to all the videos in the application. These chapters in the videos are designed so that we can move through the video more comfortably, or go to a specific point that we want to see in it.
