YouTube: How to read comments while watching a video?

Lima, October 14, 2021Updated on 10/14/2021 02:48 am

Until very recently, YouTube only allowed to view the comments of the videos from the app mobile with the phone in an upright position. But this has changed so much for devices that use Android like those that work with iOS. With some difference in dates, an update has arrived to this application.

However, this novelty has a little trick to be activated. Once ready, the appearance of the screen is very similar to what the app already offered when watching a live broadcast and comments are activated. Finally, what this update achieves is to divide the mobile screen.

Currently, it is still impossible to access the comments of a clip when it is played with the horizontal screen. To be able to do this, we will have to have the clip vertically first to activate the new function added by Google to its video platform.

To be able to activate this function, already available on both Android and iOS, follow these steps:

  1. Go to YouTube and choose a video of your choice.
  2. Hold the screen vertically and slide until you reach the comments area.
  3. Do this while the video begins to play. Click on the comment and rotate your screen to see it in landscape mode.

The video will automatically be reduced in size and displayed on the left side of the screen. At the same time, you will be able to see the comments in a bar located on the right side of the screen. You can slide your finger and navigate between the comments without interrupting the clip you are watching.

In addition to the comments, you can also see the description of the video and the playlist to which a video belongs. To see the description, you just have to do the same steps detailed above and replace the opening of comments with opening the description of the clip and turning the phone.

It is expected that Google will continue to add updates to this app, such as the inclusion of shortcuts in its horizontal reproduction to be able to enter the description and comments. So having the phone upright first is not a prerequisite for getting this feature to work.
