A major YouTube mobile update allows people to browse other videos while watching, to search and watch playlists, and to queue videos on connected devices.

Google began a slow rollout on Monday of a major update to its YouTube app for Android, with other mobile YouTube app updates coming later.

A Google representative told CNET that the slow rollout was intentional and not a leak of the app’s installer file, or APK.

YouTube 5.0 for Android includes several features to make the app more like watching YouTube on the Web and, in some cases, surpass the Web experience. Google confirmed that the updatedYouTube app is expected to reach the Google Play store sometime Tuesday morning. YouTube for iOS is also expected to update soon.
