MX Player is adding YouTube support and pinch-to-zoom for videos

While there is no dearth of video players on Android, there are a few options that are way more popular than the rest. MX Player is one such example, which rose to popularity because of its useful feature set. The video player includes several useful features, like picture-in-picture mode, subtitle gestures, file sharing, casting local files, and more, that make it one of the best video players on the Google Play Store. Now, with a recent beta release, MX Player is getting even more handy features like YouTube support and pinch-to-zoom for videos.

As per Android Police, the latest beta update for MX Player (v1.30.2 beta) brings support for pinch-to-zoom for videos. The feature will let you easily zoom into videos using the familiar pinch gesture on your device. The update also includes video playback speed controls, that will let you speed up or slow down video playback.

Additionally, the update also brings YouTube support to the app, which will let you easily search and play YouTube videos without the need to open up the YouTube app. And finally, the beta update also includes improvements for the file management feature on the app, which will now let you copy and move your audio and video files easily.
