About this app

Touch Controls

Touch Controls provides VLC-style gesture-based brightness and volume controls for the YT app when playing videos in full screen mode.

You can increase or decrease the volume by swiping your finger up or down on the right side of the screen. Swiping the finger on the left adjusts the screen brightness.

Only the official YT and YT Go apps are supported.

Go premium to enable:

• Brightness controls
• Tap action
• Double tap action
• Long press action
• Volume control action
• Seek support
• Keyboard control

If the overlays do not work please try restarting the device.

This app uses accessibility services to:

• Detect when the YT/YT Go app is playing videos in fullscreen. This will activate the transparent touch overlays to control the screen brightness and volume.

• Perform touch gestures in order to make the player controls visible.

• Listen to key presses to support the hardware keyboard control functionality.

The accessibility service is limited to the YT/YT Go app. It will not receive events from any other app. The app does not obtain or collect any personal information related to your YT activity.

App works only for volume in free mode, and is typically disruptive of the suggested videos in fullscreen mode. Microtransaction is a negative. Not worth any money, I'd say. Good people people who don't like clicking volume buttons. Could add pinch in fullscreen gestures to mimic iPhone. Would expect more features before I'd pay any money. Promptly uninstalled because the gestures are helpful but disruptive and locked down.

Great, but needs a bit more. I am on a note 10+ which has a wider screen aspect ratio. I used to use two fingers in full screen landscape mode to zoom in or out to either fill the screen or to set it to full hd size. That is no longer possible. Being a premium user, if devs do understand my issue, it will be helpful and i will be really happy even more. Till then, the brightness control, volume control, double tap to fast forward or go back is working fine. Btw, this is my 15min use review.

Volume control works great. I purchased pro version to try brightness control. It works, but strangely, I am unable to increase brightness all the way to max. It allows me to increase brightness to only about 20% by swiping. Bad experience.
