YouTube App For iOS Gets Suggestion Overlays, Closed Captions For Streams

YouTube-suggestions

Google has today updated its official YouTube app for iOS to introduce annoying suggestion overlays that offer recommendations on what to watch next over the top of the video you’re currently watching. The update also adds closed captions for live streams, and more.

Admittedly, the suggestion overlays aren’t that bad; they can easily be dismissed by tapping the little “X” that appears alongside them, and they can suggest interesting videos that you might not have stumbled upon otherwise. But no one really wants to have to dismiss popups while they’re watching a video.

In addition to this, you can now enjoy closed captions during live streams, and YouTube promises more stability improvements, including a “fix for application crashes.”

YouTube version 1.4 is available to download from the App Store now.
