It is true that YouTube Is Making Handy Video Chapters Available On More Devices. The YouTube app is pretty mature by this point, so meaningful feature additions are few and far between these days. One of the more memorable recent upgrades in functionality came with the introduction of timestamped chapters that let you jump to exactly the part of the video that you’re most interested in without having to randomly scrub through in hope.
That nifty feature is now rolling out to more devices, including select smart TVs and video game consoles.
YouTube Is Making Handy Video Chapters Available On More Devices
Chapters were officially announced by YouTube back in May 2020 after a period of testing, and the Google-owned company has since been working on bringing auto-generated chapters (powered by machine learning) to videos that don’t already have them.
More recently, the ability to easily share the exact chapter timestamp was also rolled out to the Android app, making link sharing a whole lot more powerful on mobile. As pointed out in the tweet above, video chapters are now coming to newer smart TVs and video game consoles.
Although we don’t have a full list of compatible devices, we’d expect any more modern systems to gain access to one of YouTube’s most useful recent features. Make sure your app is up-to-date and see if you can start making use of chapters right away.
Chapters Rely Wholly On Timestamps
The same design applies to how chapters work on the phone and tablet app for Android and iOS. Though, on phones YouTube had to account for the simple fact that your finger might get in the way of you seeing where the chapters are.
To solve for that, YouTube’s phone app will trigger a haptic buzz when you’ve arrived at the next chapter. On tablets or other mobile devices where haptic feedback isn’t available, the video progress bar will automatically snap to the beginning of a new chapter when you lift your finger off the screen.
If you’re looking for a specific time marker while you scrub through the video, keep your finger on the screen, then move it below the progress bar without letting up to clearly see the time marker.
YouTube is a video sharing service where users can watch, like, share, and comment and upload their own videos. The video service can be accessed on PCs, laptops, tablets and via mobile phones.
Creating a YouTube channel is completely free. The part that can get expensive is when you start to create the content for your channel.
62 percent of businesses use YouTube as a channel to post video content. More than 70 percent of YouTube watch time comes from mobile devices. 90 percent of people say they discover new brands or products on YouTube. 400 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute worldwide.
YouTube Premium (formerly known as YouTube Red) is one of a few premium membership services we offer for amplifying your experience on YouTube.
YouTube Premium cost a specified month and includes ad-free video, the option to continue playing videos or music “in the background” (meaning the audio will continue if you minimize the app), music and video downloads, and access to YouTube original movies and TV shows.
Unless you have lots of interest in YouTube Originals, Premium isn’t worth it. And if you don’t use YouTube’s mobile apps often, you won’t appreciate all the Premium benefits. But if you want to get rid of YouTube ads and would use YouTube Music Premium regularly, then YouTube Premium is a good value.
