From the last few months, YouTube is continuously making improvements on its platform to make it easier for people to use YouTube. With the latest change, YouTube is making it easier to navigate longer videos with its new “chapters” feature.
The streaming platform has been testing this feature from the past few weeks, and now, this feature is permanently moved on YouTube. Chapters are now available on the web and in the Android and iOS YouTube apps.

Viewers can click on chapters to jump to a specific part of a video and rewatch video clips – a more convenient alternative to scrubbing. Chapters are visible at the bottom of the video player and show timestamps from the video description.
As of now, Chapters are available as an optional feature that will only appear if a video creator chooses to include them. Creators can only use chapters if the first chapter starts at 0:00, the video has at least three-time stamps or chapters, and if each chapter is at least 10 seconds.
