One of our favorite third-party YouTube apps Metrotube picked up an update to version 4.3, which brings new features like continuous playback, audio mode and more. With continuous playback, you can navigate away from Metrotube and still have the video playing in the background. Returning to the app will enable audio automatically.
Here's the changelog for version 4.3:
- Continuous playback for multitasking
- Continuous playback when locking the device
- Switch button in top left allows for switching between video and audio mode manually at any time
- Audio mode and continuous playback both work offline with preloaded videos
- Full screen button in top right of video allows for enlarged playback with one tap for those who lock their rotation
- Performance enhancements
- Bug fixes
Audio mode sends the audio to the default music background agent, although you can access pause/play controls from within Metrotube. The new multitasking features are bound to come in handy when you're browsing other content, and makes Metrotube even more robust.
For all those who have already installed the update, let us know how you're liking the new features in the comments. The app costs $0.99, but there's an unlimited trial version available should you wish to check out the features.
Thanks everyone for sending this in!
