One of many issues that first struck me about MX Player, after I tried it out a few years in the past, was its swiping gestures on all sides of the display. As a substitute of on the lookout for bodily quantity buttons or pausing the video to search out the brightness controls on my telephone, a easy swipe would alter these with out skipping a second. These identical gestures are actually obtainable in Android’s built-in video participant.
Information by Google, which began out in 2017 as Files Go and graduated to change into the default file manager in Android 11, has been including many new options up to now few months. After safe folder, PDF support, and video playback speed, its included video participant now helps swiping gestures on all sides of the display. The precise aspect controls quantity, the left brightness. These work properly whether or not you are watching in portrait or panorama.
The change is reside for us in v1.0.332273520 (APK Mirror) of Information by Google, which rolled out towards the tip of September. However since there was no visible trace that this function was added, we missed it till our tipster pointed it out.
