Change in YouTubes user interface
Things on YouTube have changed slightly, in case you didn’t notice. It now has a transparent video player on its web interface from today. The controls are not placed at the bottom of the video and they disappear after a second or two of inactivity. This update was long due; they were testing this since April 2015.
They confirmed that the update was globally available from today on Twitter for all the browsers; the users will now be able to see this update.

No more buffering
YouTube Offline feature is beneficial for people who don’t have a data plan. YouTubers can buffer the video and can watch it later. They will not have to go through the buffering process again. It’ll be plain-sailing for people commuting in trains and busses to use YouTube which in turn will increase YouTube users.
