YouTube has announced yet another feature that has been highly requested by users for quite some time, but this new feature will only be available for YouTube Android for the time being.
For many years, YouTube users have been longing for a video looping feature within the video streaming service, but YouTube has good reason not to implement such a thing.
Much like any other social media giant, YouTube makes its revenue by selling ads, so it's in their best interest to keep video's playing, one after the next, with relevant ads in between. As soon as a user loops a video, there is no place for ads at the beginning or at the end of the video the next time it is played in session – unless new ads are played throughout the video, which could be quite annoying unless you're a paid YouTube subscriber.
A looping video within YouTube will prove to be highly convenient for those who stream music mixes and compilations. Up until now, if you wanted to loop a YouTube video, you would have to copy the video link and paste it into another online service that would handle the looping for you.
