YouTube gets Subscription filters for iOS

Google has introduced the Subscription tabs on its iOS YouTube app.

The tech giant - which owns the video streaming platform - confirmed plans to bring the feature to Android phones "in the future" as the addition has been rolled out to make things less intimidating to viewers when it comes to what to watch next.

The filters help users by giving them an easier way to order unwatched videos from channels they subscribe to, which could be a big boost for people wanting a lot of channels.

With the new feature, people can decide whether to view videos from all subscriptions at once, just videos posted today, or videos they have started but not finished.

They can also opt to check out videos from subscriptions they haven't watched at all, as well as live videos from the channels or simply see a list of short posts made by the platforms.

By tapping each filter, users will get to see a list - in reverse chronological order - of videos matching that filter.

Meanwhile, it should be noted these changes aren't mandatory, and users choosing not to embrace them will simply have their subscriptions default to a reverse chronological list of every video from all the channels they subscribe to.
