Youtube testing ‘timestamps’ so you can jump to specific moments without watching long videos

Google's video sharing platform is going to YouTube to improve your users' experience. It has been revealed that YouTube is testing a timestamps or bookmarks feature on its platform. Often it happens that you want to see only a certain part of a YouTube video, and this feature allows users to start the video from a specific point instead of watching the full video. This feature has been spotted by Android Police and the feature is not available in all areas at present.

According to a specific report, the feature was found in 10.7.4.21 of the Google app. No information has been revealed about when this feature will be available to everyone. If you search ForTube videos from Google's beta app with version 10.7.4.21, you see some videos with their timeline and bookmarks. The timestamp and information that scrolls down the video timeline is provided. This allows you to go directly to the part of the video you want to see. which may prove to be a better feature for users.

 

The best part of this feature is that many bookmarks are also showing thumbnails that make it easier for video viewers to switch to parts of the video. The video can be played from one point by clicking on the thumbnail. These are highlighted in blue and some users have also shared screenshots with Android police. Currently, the feature is not fully ready because some timeline loopholes are still being noticed, which can be fixed. In addition to this feature, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said on Monday that YouYou had removed more than 90 lakh videos from its platform in the last quarter. Such videos have been removed due to dangerous and objectionable content. According to a PTI report, Pichai also said that the platform is too big to address the problem and crosscheck every video.
