However, now, it is bringing one of those changes to the web version. We are talking about, including the “autoplay” toggle directly inside the video bar.

Right now, for millions around the world, the YouTube “autoplay” toggle sits at the right sidebar as a part of the “up next” section that shows the video that will play next. However, with the new design, the “autoplay” toggle now resides inside the video player itself, making it more accessible and easier to reach.
