New multi-touch gestures include horizontal swipe for playback position, vertical swipe in the right half of the video to adapt volume, similar swipe in the left half of the video to adapt brightness and two finger tap to play and pause. The app also supports downloads from Google Drive as well as download and streaming support from Dropbox.
