    IMO it's the ability to play YouTube sound with screen off.
    I'm pretty sure it started to allow me this right after I updated to 5.1. I've been waiting for this feature for at least a year because I listen to YouTube news in my car on the way home.
    Now I only wish they's allow us to listen to YouTube on the background like G Music. I bet it's coming when YouTube music subscription goes live.

    Hmm, doesn't work on my Nexus 5 (at least not if I press the Power button to turn off the screen).

    Strange. I have Nexus 6 and even rebooted to make sure it wasn't some sort of a glitch. I can start a YouTube video then press the power button to shut off the screen and the sound keeps on playing.

    It may depend on the device you are using I guess but I know for a fact that it didn't work on MotoX, Nexus6, Nexus7, Nexus5. At the moment it only works on my nexus 6 which has 5.1
