Twitter testing a way to watch YouTube videos directly in iOS app

Twitter has announced that it’s now testing a new feature on iOS to enable its users to watch YouTube videos directly in their Home timeline. 

Before the new feature, clicking a YouTube video link would take iOS users to another screen where they could watch the video or navigate to the YouTube app. 

With the new feature Twitter is currently testing on iOS, users won’t have to leave their conversations to watch YouTube videos. 

The announcement comes a week after the company introduced a better way to display images on the timeline and announced it’s testing new ways to upload & view 4K images. 

The social media giant has introduced many new features recently including the Super Follows service, new shopping features, and the Tip Jar feature for Spaces to help content creators make money. The platform is also reportedly testing an Undo Send feature
