How annoying it might be having to unlock your phone screen and scroll through all the open apps to pause, forward or rewind what you’re casting on your Chromecast or smart TV. But now, YouTube has finally made things easier for sadly, just iOS users as of this moment.

The latest version of the YouTube app for iPhones and iPads adds lock screen controls not just for Chromecast, but also for smart TVs and other devices. If you do have an Apple Watch, you’ll now be able to access play, pause, prev, next and volume controls on your wearable, as well. The upgrade is now available from iTunes – just download it and enjoy!

There might be an Android counterpart of the update as well, so stay tuned!
