The inline player lets you watch videos while you browse YouTube.
The inline player lets you fast forward, rewind, and watch videos while you browse the Home tab and search results page. As you scroll through your Home feed and search results, videos will begin to play on mute with captions auto-enabled. If you’d like, you can also turn on sound with the inline player.
The inline player may be on by default when you're using either Wi-Fi or mobile data. If you'd like to customize your inline player experience, use the directions below:
To turn the inline player on or off:
- Select your profile picture .
- Tap Settings General.

- Always on - Use on Wi-Fi and mobile data
- Wi-Fi only - Use only when connected to Wi-Fi
- Off - Don’t use at all
Note: The inline player feature is in beta and may not be available to everyone. While availability is subject to change, only Android mobile devices can use the inline player right now. This feature is not compatible with older operating systems or older versions of the YouTube app.
