YouTube deploys several features for its interface: the ability to go to the most watched moments of a video, loop playback of a video, etc.
YouTube announces several new features for its video player. Among other things, you are going to be able to see the most reviewed parts of a video, access to chapters on TVs and consoles, watch a video on a loop, etc.
What are the most reviewed parts of a video?
YouTube will allow you to see at a glance the most frequently reviewed parts of a video, those where Internet users have returned. This will display as a graphic just above the red progress bar when you decide to go further in a video or rewind. What to quickly find these moments and perhaps to dodge the blabla of youtubers or advertising inserts in videos (Nord VPN and RAID: Shadow Legendswe see you).
A feature that had been tested, but is available “from todayon desktop and mobile. For the moment, we have not been able to access it, just like our colleagues from Android Central.
Access different chapters of a video on TVs and consoles
Until now, if you were watching a YouTube video on your TV or console, the chapters did show up. However, it was impossible to go to a specific chapter automatically: you just had to advance the video as far as you wanted. YouTube now solves this problem two years after the arrival of the chapters. A feature that has been used on 20 million videos; chapters can now bere-generated automatically and viewed on more devices“.
YouTube takes the opportunity to encourage its creators to add chapters to their videos. But at Frandroid, we already do it!
Watching a video on a loop is now possible
YouTube is launching the ” Single Loop» : it plays a video in a loop automatically. It is available on computer, Android, iPhone and iPad. However, it will not be available on YouTube Go, since Google will remove the application.
Go directly to the parts of a video that interest us
YouTube is starting a test phase for a new feature: it allows you to “find the exact moment of a video you want to watch“. YouTube Premium subscribers should be the first to see it land.
If YouTube pushes the chapters on its videos, especially for the longest ones, the platform adopts a double strategy by also pushing its Shorts and thinks about putting advertising there. The online video site is currently testing Dolby Surround 5.1 on Google TV/Android TV.
