YouTube multitasking is coming, claims a leakster
A few hours ago, reliable leakster @ryanf1fan has posted yet another heads-up on The Verge forum. According to him, “coming out in sometime” is an updated YouTube app which will allow users to simultaneously watch one video whilst searching for another. And while the Google team is at it, we can think of a bunch of people that would also love the ability to listen to music whilst YouTube is running in the background.

Back to the leak at hand, @ryanf1fan claims app performance is fluid and fast on his Galaxy Nexus and shares some more info on the functionality of the upcoming update:

  • App will retain current aesthetic
  • When you start a video an arrow pointing down will appear at the top left corner
  • Swiping on the arrow will create a small window at the bottom left corner of the screen where the video will continue playing
  • You can continue scrolling through other videos simultaneously
  • It currently doesn't support system wide capabilities but that should come by launch time

That would be a nice addition, but messages is needed badly.

If you're running iOS, you can do so through an package on Cydia. If you're on Android, I'm pretty sure you can use Firefox and install an add-on that downloads YouTube Videos.
