The video player, embedded in the browser itself, makes sure that you don’t need to open another application to watch videos on the internet. Also, with gestures controlling the videos, it very much works in the same way as other players do. By swiping up on the left side of the screen, the brightness can be controlled, while a similar gesture on the right side of the screen can be used to adjust volume. The playback features too can be controlled by gestures. Also Read - How to download Instagram videos on Android, iOS, PC
And it’s not just the video player that benefits from gesture support. The browser too accepts gestures, so there’s no need to tap multiple times on the screen for navigating web pages or opening and closing tabs. Also Read - This Android smartphone comes with a massive 13,200mAh battery
There’s also an “Intelligent Text Zoom” function, which makes sure that text content stays big and saves the user from zooming in and out to control the text size. The browser also comes with “Page Preloader,” a feature that preloads the consecutive page in case of paged articles.
In addition to all that, using the Cloud Sync feature, bookmarks created on UC Browser HD 3.0 can be synced with other devices and vice-versa.
