YouTube is adding filters to the Subscriptions tab on its iOS app today to better sort through your videos. The tech giant says that they will bring this feature to Android in teh future. The filters exist to help users more easily order their unwatched videos from channels they subscribed to and could be particularly helpful for people who subscribe to a lot of channels.
This is a great feature for people that primarily use the Subscriptions tab to find videos to watch. Under the stories section of the subscribed channel, there is a new carousel with six topics and a settings shortcut. Everything is in reverse chronological order.
- All lists all videos from channels you’re subscribed to (like it does today) from latest to oldest. This will continue to be your default setting.
- Today shows you videos that were published within the past 24 hours.
- Continue Watching only shows you videos that you previously started watching but haven’t finished yet.
- Unwatched only show you videos you haven’t yet watched.
- Live only shows you livestream videos and YouTube Premieres.
- Posts show you Community posts from channels you’re subscribed to – you won’t see any videos in this view.
As mentioned by the company, during the testing phase of this feature, YouTube found that these Subscription filters “encouraged more subscribers to come to their subs feed daily to look for new updates.” It is optional, with the app defaulting to “All.”
As mentioned above, this feature is currently available on iOS and will be available soon on Android.
