Leaker discovery Ishan Agarwal shows that Like and Dislike buttons, comments or sharing are now directly available in landscape mode. Previously, it was necessary to leave this full screen mode to access these buttons.

The newfound novelty makes you can easily like a video or share it easily without leaving full screen mode. Which in certain situations will make your life easier. And what you’re watching doesn’t stop playing.

These controls also give you quick access to the comments section, which was only accessible if you switched back to portrait mode. When you tap on the comments button, they appear on the left side of this landscape mode.
