Ryan Socio, the gentleman who first reported the name Hangouts in regards to Google’s “Babel” project, recently got his hands on an unreleased version of the YouTube app for Android. According to Socio, the app has some sweet new features on the way.

Without giving any info on when we could expect the new version to hit Google Play, the insider states that the app will feature real multitasking capabilities, allowing watchers to view their videos, while also searching for other videos at the same time. 

While inside a video, a little arrow will appear – with a quick swipe with your finger on the arrow, a browser will appear, allowing you to search simultaneously for more content as the video plays inside of a smaller box. According to the source, the app performs very smoothly and will retain the YouTube app’s current aesthetics.

We will definitely keep you posted.
