What are the various ways to skip a song on youtube on Apple TV using the iOS remote app or Apple Watch remote app?

Currently, it seems like the easiest way to do this is to just fast forward till the end of the song.

What are the gestures on iPhone to skip a song and how can I do this on my Apple Watch?

On iPhone

If a song is playing then go to details and you can press the two arrows at the bottom to fast forward/skip a song or you can tap the 10 icons to skip back or forward 10 seconds:


From this Apple Support article:

Fast-forward: Tap the 10 icon to skip ten seconds ahead in a video. Or tap Fast forward

to fast-forward in a song.

Rewind: Tap the 10 icon to skip ten seconds back in a video. Or tap Rewind to rewind in a song.

On the Apple Watch
