This app uses Accessibility services.
Disclosure on the use of accessibility services:
• The accessibility service is used to detect when the YouTube/YouTube Go app is playing videos in fullscreen ('Monitor your actions' and 'Retrieve window content'). This will activate the transparent touch overlays to control device brightness and volume (permissions 'Apps that can appear on top' and 'Apps that can change system settings').
• The accessibility service is used to perform a touch gesture in order to make the player controls visible ('Perform gestures').
• The accessibility service is used to used to listen to key strokes to support hardware keyboard control functionality, e.g. pressing Space key to play/pause the video ('Observe text you type').
• The accessibility service is limited to the YouTube/YouTube Go app. It will not receive events from any other app.
• The app does not obtain or collect any personal information related to your YouTube activity.
