YouTube has begun the trials of the timed reactions feature on its mobile apps. Users will be able to react to a specific moment in a video with up to eight emojis on the Google-owned video streaming platform. As previously stated, the company is conducting YouTube timed reactions trials, so the final outcome may change as a result of user feedback.
YouTube has launched the timed reactions experiment, which gives you the option to share a reaction (smiley face, confetti, etc.) at a specific point in a video. As of now, it is being tested on a small number of channels. While announcing the feature the Google-owned platform said, “We wanted to test out similar features after hearing such positive feedback about the timed comments beta feature (where you can add and view comments for specific moments in videos).”
You can react and see crowd reactions if you’re watching a video that’s part of this experiment by opening the video’s comment section and tapping into the reaction panel. The test will also show you which moments other viewers are reacting to (all reactions will be anonymous – however, YouTube won’t reveal who sent them). Multiple sets of reactions are being put to the test and depending on how the experiment goes, YouTube will add or remove reactions as it may undergo several improvements during the trial and before it is finally released to all the users.
As we said earlier the company is running the trials of YouTube timed reactions so the final outcome may see changes as a result of user feedback.
Recently YouTube announced the release of new health features in India to allow users to identify authoritative information about health. New health source information panels have been added to the video streaming platform, which will label videos from reputable health organisations and government institutions. This can be used to determine which data sources are reliable. Furthermore, the Google-owned video platform has added health content shelves to search results, highlighting videos from reputable sources. Users in Brazil, India, and Japan will notice new features alongside health-related searches and videos. It’s worth noting that both the new wellness features will be available in Hindi and English. YouTube has also partnered with some of the world’s leading health organisations to create video content and make it easier for users to find authoritative health information.
