YouTube rolls out iPhone widgets to open subscriptions search

YouTube has introduced an iPhone home screen widgets to immediately open home, shorts and subscriptions search.

The ‘Search YouTube’ section at the top instantly opens the UI (user interface) with the active keyboard while the microphone icon brings voice search.

The application had introduced handles, a new way for people to easily find and engage with creators and each other on the Google-owned streaming platform.

Handles appear on channel pages and Shorts so that they will be instantly and consistently recognisable.

It is simpler and faster to mention each other in comments, community posts, video descriptions, and more.

“Handles join channel names as another way to identify a YouTube channel, but unlike channel names, handles are truly unique to each channel so creators can further establish their distinct presence and brand on YouTube,”

‘Quick Actions’ is a tool to search and browse the application, reports 9To5Google.
