YouTube is currently testing some exciting new features that involve integrating AI into the viewing experience. These changes aim to improve two crucial aspects: helping viewers better comprehend the content they watch and facilitating better interaction for channel creators with their subscribers.
In the near future, YouTube users will have the opportunity to explore a new conversational tool that utilizes AI to answer questions and provide recommendations related to YouTube content. Additionally, this tool can summarize topics discussed in video comments. To try it out, simply head to youtube.com/new.
This conversational tool relies on AI to respond to user queries about YouTube content and offer suggestions. Fueled by extensive language models that gather information from both YouTube and the web, this tool enables users to dive deeper into the content they’re currently watching.
Whether you want to ask questions about the video you’re viewing or seek recommendations for similar content, this AI-driven interaction seamlessly occurs while the video is streaming, ensuring uninterrupted playback.
Another innovative feature is the comments summarizer, which uses generative AI to organize and summarize discussions in large comment sections under videos. This tool is designed to help viewers efficiently catch up on conversations and provides creators with insights into the topics discussed by their subscribers.
