The beta version of popular YouTube app myTube has been updated with a taste of Project NEON-like blur handful of new features to check out on Windows 10. Alongside the design shift, you can now also take advantage of comment threads, comment replies, and more.
As far as the new design is concerned, myTube Beta now sports a blurred transparency effect on the sidebar and behind the main video feed. This is similar to Microsoft's new Project NEON design language that is starting to make its way into Microsoft's own apps — including, most recently, Groove Music.
Here's a quick look at the release notes for the rest of this update:
- Added comment threads
- Added ability to reply to comments
- Implemented share target
- Added option to use official YouTube HTML5 player
- (PC) Added volume control
- (PC/Mobile) Added feedback hub option to account app bar
- (Xbox) Multi-process background audio disabled by default
