Need to do a little last-minute fine-tuning to that video of your cat before you upload it to YouTube? If you’re an Android user, you can now trim your video clips directly from the YouTube app before you upload.

According to the YouTube Creators page on +, this new version of YouTube for Android lets you “select the exact frame where the video starts ends, giving you precise control of your trims in a simple, intuitive way.” The app also now shows you a preview of your video before you upload it so you know what you’ve got.

In addition, YouTube says the new version will upload videos more quickly than it had in previous versions.

This YouTube app update is now available for download from ay; there’s no word on when iOS users will be able to join in the fun.
