One of the recent features YouTube has introduced is chapters. What this does is that it allows creators to split their videos into different chapters to make it easier to navigate. Now it seems that YouTube will be taking advantage of chapters and will use it in search results to bring up more accurate videos.
This means that if you’re searching for something specific, instead of showing you the whole video, in which some parts might not be relevant, YouTube will now start to show the relevant chapters. This is pretty cool and it should save users a few extra steps when it comes to searching for the video that they want.
Other changes that YouTube will be bringing to the table include previews on mobile search results, so you can see a short clip before actually clicking on the video. YouTube is also expected to expand to other languages in its search results, where if they can’t find what you’re looking for in your main language, it will try to search for content in other languages and will show automatically translated captions, titles, and descriptions.
According to YouTube, this will mainly apply to English-language videos first and is currently being tested in India and Indonesia, but there are plans to consider expanding to more locations based on user feedback.
