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.
