According to Twitter’s support account, the company is planning to start a new way of viewing YouTube videos from home, directly from the Twitter iOS app. The tech giant has made this decision shortly after it tested images on its app.

Before this change, the YouTube videos weren’t available as a preview on iOS. Therefore, you had to click the link to start watching the videos within the Twitter iOS app. This means that you could play or click the video, without leaving the current conversation.

This took you off to another screen where you were able to play the video or tap again to watch the YouTube iOS app. Now, you can see the videos without losing your current place in the Twitter timeline.

For this test, Twitter is using YouTube Frame Player API. Before going out globally, it will be live in Japan, Saudi Arabia, Canada, and the U.S. However, the company didn’t give a time frame when it will be available for Twitter users.

Earlier this month, the company made the announcement that it would work for a better media-viewing experience on its app. Moreover, the photo preview test-launched on Android and iOS last week. Now, Twitter is providing viewers a good view of what the images would look like.

These changes were not only welcomed by the users, but the creators and developers also commended the step. The company will soon offer a new service, known as “Super Follow.” This will allow the tech giant to publish subscriber-only content, like top deals, exclusive content, and newsletters. However, to support the creators, Twitter has planned to make the content sharing process, feel native and seamless to the app.

Earlier this month, Twitter tested some new e-commerce features for tweets. Moreover, the company plans to introduce a few more updates in the coming days and weeks.
