YouTube Tests ‘featured in this video’ Section on Android Mobile Platform


YouTube has become the largest video platform in the world with millions of its regular creators or producers who upload fresh contents regularly through their YouTube channel. Today, YouTube has announced a new feature for Android users who make use of YouTube videos through their smartphone. This new feature makes it easier for users to find out creators easily with whom they can collaborate.

According to 9to5Android, YouTube has started testing out this new feature called ‘featured in this video.’ This feature will be very helpful for those who want to contribute or collaborate with other like-minded ones. This will generate links to each creator. The links will be shown in the video itself. You will not have to search for different pages and links to find the creator.

Google has said that they are making this new feature stronger by implementing new algorithms. The creators’ links will be based on a range of signals that will enable great recommendations for the users. You will see suitable or required recommendations while exploring the videos on YouTube on Android platform once this feature is available.

If you are a creator and upload regular videos or content on YouTube, then you no longer need to add a separate link or any other data within the description box. Everything will be well managed by YouTube. On the other hand, this feature will make things a lot easier for the viewers who can easily discover channels as per their interest.

Apparently, there’s no official word on the availability of this new feature by Google. What we can assume is that the new ‘featured in this video’ feature is still in its beta phase i.e. it is in its initial stage of testing. For testing purpose, this feature is made available for a limited number of Android users. The company has fetched only a few channels from their library which would be used to enable this feature for the testers.

Google is collecting feedback from the testers. After some time, they will make this new feature enable for the  Android platform. There are no words on the availability of this feature on the iOS platform as of now.
