Twitter Testing Ability To Watch YouTube Videos Natively Within App

Over coming weeks, Twitter says it will test new ways for users to share and view media within its mobile app, including the ability to watch YouTube videos directly within the timeline.

In a thread where it also announced that it will be testing bigger, uncropped images within Tweets on both iOS and Android — as well as the ability to upload and view 4k images — Twitter shared the YouTube integration, though it is only available on iOS for now.

Previously, YouTube links on the mobile timeline redirected users to watch videos in a web browser or on the YouTube app.
