Google issued an update to its YouTube app for iOS this week that adds a progress bar to the thumbnails of previously watched videos, allowing users to resume playback from where they left off.

Ever have trouble remembering if you've seen a video or how far you made it through the video? We have added a progress bar to all previously watched thumbnails that lets you know how far you made it through the video. Partially watched videos will resume from where you left off.

The version 11.45 progress bar update follows a recent redesign of the YouTube app which also brought in-app video editing tools to make videos.

YouTube for iOS is available in the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

I've had this for a few weeks now in the UK, maybe I was part of the A/B test?

The screenshot in the article doesn't appear to show the progress bars, which are the central point of this article - those colored boxes around the videos appear to just be part of those videos). The progress bars are a red line across the bottom edge of the thumbnail, and are not hard to find if you look at your history:
