With this latest addition to the dock attribute of the amp-video component, developers can even decide how and where the video docks.
For example, developers can customize their player to loop videos within predefined Start and End times. Such customizations will open up new possibilities and empower developers to deliver uniquely tailor-made experiences.
This feature has now been enhanced further.
By popular demand, the infinite scroll has been introduced to AMP Pages. It delivers an uninterrupted browsing experience to the user, by eliminating the need to keep visiting the “next” page.
This experimental feature enables the user to keep on scrolling, after tapping the “See More” button at the end of every list, as more list items appear below. It's more convenient for the mobile-users, as they can access all the content from one page. So naturally, infinite lists are quickly becoming the new standard of the modern User Experience (UX).
Now - with the new amp-consent component - AMP Pages are smoothly compatible with such third party CMPs (across vendors). Managed by the CMP, consent prompts will pop up on your AMP Pages. Publishers can even inline the configuration to display their own custom UI inside the consent prompt.
Whether they're fillling out dates, payment details or phone numbers, mobile-users can register their sensitive information much faster now.
Now, the AMP UI Working Group has polished the lightbox component to include smooth transitional animations for each image, as it enters and exits this mode.
A new amp-date-display component can now be used to display dates as per localized time settings. It also allows for different date formats. So basically, users will be able to see the publishing date for an article in terms of their local time.
And one of the most exciting applications of AMP - AMP Stories - will soon undergo some major changes like link support for the top 80%, a new desktop UI, a hamburger menu and several attachments.
