The latest MX Player beta version allows in-app YouTube playback and much more
MX Player is a popular video player that brings you a FREE streaming service offering more than 100,000+ hours of content including Original & Exclusive Shows, Movies, TV Shows, Web Series & a dual Music experience with videos and audio. It has over 280 million users globally. The platform currently operates on an ad-supported model and has a streaming library of over 150,000 hours across 12 languages. It is available on iOS, Android, and the web.
On 20 February 2019, MX Player was relaunched as an OTT platform with original programming. It has licensed contents from various Indian and International studios including FilmRise, Sonar Entertainment, Screen Media Films, Goldmine, Hungama, Shemaroo, Paramount Pictures, and Sony Entertainment. Now, according to the various media reports, it was known that the latest beta release of the app comes with several new additions including pinch-to-zoom and in-app YouTube browsing.
It was noted that the changes are being tested in version 1.30, which is currently in beta. Basically, you can now search and play YouTube videos without leaving the app. Also, it is worth knowing that you will not see the comments section of the video when you watch YouTube videos on MX Player. In addition, you will also notice that the recommended videos from YouTube are missing in this new MX Player update. It is because the app lists its own content below YouTube videos.
Video playback speed controls are getting easier to access, and the update also gives more control over file management to users, enabling them to perform simple file operations like copy and move on audio and video files. As the app is still in the beta, you can either wait for the company to bring these feature additions to the stable channel on Play Store or sideload the beta build from APKMirror.
