YouTube Testing AI-Driven Comment Summarization Feature
YouTube is consistently experimenting with new features and most of the recent ones revolve around artificial intelligence. The video streaming platform has recently rolled out a feature that enables the summarization of videos using AI, and now, it is testing a new feature that applies AI to summarize comments. Here’s everything you need to know about this new development.
Summarizing Comments with AI
The new experimental feature on YouTube aims to summarize and organize the comments section, especially when there are a large number of comments, based on topics using AI. This AI-driven technology will make it much easier for users to access the comments they are looking for. It will also be beneficial for the creators of the videos as it will help them efficiently manage the comments they receive.
Availability for Premium Users
As of now, the summary of comments using AI is only available for select YouTube Premium users on both Android and iOS platforms. If you are a YouTube Premium subscriber, you can check the Premium benefits section under your username to see if this feature is available to trial. Simply tap the ‘try it out’ option to get started. Once enabled, you can navigate to the comments section of any video and select the three-dotted menu to sort the comments by topic.
Additional AI Features Being Tested
Aside from the AI-driven comment summarization, YouTube is also experimenting with an ‘Ask’ option for videos, which uses AI to answer questions related to the video. This feature will initially be available to some users on select English videos and is also a part of YouTube Premium, specifically on the Android platform.
