One of the most noteworthy functions of YouTube Vanced allows us to zoom into the videos that are played in the application. For such purpose, we have to carry out the following steps:
- Step 1: search for any video that you want to play with YouTube Vanced and press play.
- Step 2: once the video starts to play, you can zoom into it. Simply use your fingers to carry out the same gesture as you would if you wanted to zoom into a photo in your gallery or camera app. The image will become magnified but to the limit set by the image’s resolution (the higher the quality, the more we can zoom in). In that case, a Zoomed to fill message will appear.
- Step 3: to zoom out we simply have to repeat the opposite operation. In other words, pinching the image to return it to its original size.
As we mentioned above, this is one of the functions available in YouTube Vanced that we won’t find in the original YouTube app. Furthermore, there are other interesting options such as the possibility to play videos in the background, and the favorite feature for many of its users: the option to block adverts on YouTube videos.
Google usually forbids any app that modifies the original source code of its applications. And that also goes for this app, especially if we bear in mind that adverts are the company’s main income source, therefore, it’s easy to understand why Google doesn’t allow this app to be distributed from its official store. For such reason, if you want to use this tool, you’ll have to download the APK of YouTube Vanced from Malavida.
