YouTube for iOS was updated with an annoyance-fixer on Wednesday that improved the ability to view long comment strings, along with a bug fix for headphone video control.

As shown above, opening lengthy comment strings now bring up a new dialogue for viewing that isolated conversation. You can scroll up and down to your hearts content, and when you’ve finished you can tap the X in the upper right hand corner to return to the main comment view. The same scroll view is now shown when replying to singular comments, too.

The full changelog is posted below. Let us know what you think about these YouTube app changes by sounding off in the comments section below.

What’s new

  • View all comment replies without minimizing the video player
  • Keep your place in the Home feed after watching a video in full screen
  • Search your watch history in Library > History
  • Fixed a bug so now you can play or pause videos with headphone controls
