YouTube to soon let you watch videos in incognito mode: Top features coming up : Shaikh Inside

These features were discovered in an APK teardown of the latest YouTube version for Android.

YouTube is currently working on Google Chrome-like incognito mode for Android users.

YouTube is working on a bunch of new features for its Android version. An APK teardown by 9to5 Google reveals the video-sharing platform will soon be adding the most sought after feature ‘Dark Theme’, which tones down your screen’s glare and experience. This feature is already available for the desktop users.

An APK teardown essentially means digging inside the app to search for hints buried in codes which could reveal upcoming features. 9to5 Google through “various lines of code” was able to find hints for features, including dark theme, incognito mode, swipe to skip ads, and new autoplay settings.

Dark Theme

Last August, YouTube went through a design overhaul which brought in a new logo, and many features. Dark theme was made available through this update. As the name suggests, this feature turns your YouTube background to black colour with shades of grey. The APK teardown reveals codes mentioning dark theme which can be used throughout the app. Like the desktop version, dark theme on the Android app will most likely function with a toggle on/off key.

Incognito Mode

YouTube could also be getting an incognito mode similar to Google Chrome. The incognito icon available on Chrome was discovered on YouTube’s APK teardown, and an option that turns the feature off. Currently, you can manually pause watch and search history by turning it on and off under ‘History & Privacy’. However, incognito mode would ease this process with just one tap.

Swipe to skip ads

The next feature will make things a little easier for users who do not have YouTube Red. Ads shown before videos on YouTube which come with the option to skip after 5 seconds require tapping on the ‘Skip Ad’ banner. YouTube could soon allow users to simply swipe to skip these ads. Note that this will work only for ads which can be skipped.

Lastly, the ‘Autoplay’ setting could be shifted from its current position of being available under the ‘General’ tab. Autoplay can now be found directly under the ‘Settings’ menu.

The discovery of these features does say that YouTube is working on them for the Android app. However, it doesn’t confirm that YouTube will officially release them in the future.

5 Best BHIM UPI Apps in India for Digital Payments : Shaikh Inside

5 Best UPI Apps in India for Digital Payments : Shaikh Inside

UPI apps have changed the way of making payments. Though slowly but they are replacing all other payment options including cash. Google play store is flooded with a lot of BHIM UPI apps. Some of them are best UPI apps and some are bad. In this post, I have included the top 5 best UPI apps among all UPI apps. I have personally used and tested all these apps to make the list worthwhile. Keep in mind that you can use any of the UPI apps available in the play store. For example, if you have a bank account in ICICI, you add this account to SBI Pay, BHIM, Tez or any other UPI app. UPI apps are bank independent so you don’t need to worry about it. If the app by your bank is not good enough, throw it out and grab another best UPI app from the below list. 1. Google Tez App 2. BHIM SBI Pay 3. BHIM UPI App ( Making INDIA Cashless ) 4. BHIM Axis Pay ( UPI App, Online Reacharges & Payments ) 5. PhonePe Also Try - BHIM PNB UPI
1. Google Tez…
