YouTube is introducing 4 new features for video creation. These features enable the creators to enrich their videos as well as regulate their channels on the digital media platform. Of these, a few features are currently available while the others are getting rolled out over the coming few weeks.
The new features along with their details are as listed below:
- Being aware of when the audience is online
- Reviewing inappropriate comments
- Scheduling community posts
- Video chapters
YouTube is providing video creators with access to data which enables them to be aware of when their audience is online. The data also detects the hours in a week in which the audience is the most active on a channel. YouTube is recommending the usage of this data in order to decide on the optimum times for broadcasting the live streams. Channels can also use this data for arranging to publish their videos when most of the audience is online.
YouTube Introduces New Video Creation Features
The previously optional YouTube setting of ‘hold inappropriate comments for review’ is now going to be set to default. This setting assists the creators in managing the comments at scale as well as in boosting the quality of conversations on their channel.
The capability for scheduling community posts is presently available on the desktop web main app. This feature enables the creators to outline their community posts ahead of schedule and to determine future publishing dates.
The ‘Video Chapters’ is the latest feature that will be rolled out in the coming weeks. It will enable the creators to segregate their videos into various chapters that the viewers may skip over. The videos should consist of a minimum of 3 chapters with each chapter being at least of 10 seconds duration. Video creators need to add timestamps to the video description and ensure that the first chapter begins at “0:00.”
