The Google-owned video sharing network, YouTube has rolled out a new feature in its new update that lets users double-tap on the left or right side of their mobile screen to fast forward or backward any video by 10 seconds. The functionality works only in full-screen mode and is available in the latest app versions of YouTube for both iOS and Android.

While mostly the users are finding this new feature useful, many others seem to be finding the buttons rather annoying, reporting they slow down the interface and make it difficult to switch between going into and out of full-screen mode.
