YouTube is Adding a New Feature to Make Watching Videos A Lot More Enjoyable





Have you ever been watching a video, and suddenly it goes from quiet to crazy load hurting your ears? Good news YouTube is testing a new “stable volume” feature that appears to help ensure the volume never gets to crazy load or too quiet.

First spotted on Reddit and by M. Brandom Lee, this feature is slowly rolling out and appears to use AI to level out the volumes of the videos you are watching. Google often will test new features like this by offering them to a select number of customers before a more general rollout.

The good news is this optional feature can be turned on and off for each video you watch. So if you don’t want it turning it off is very easy. Right now, testing seems to be limited to mobile devices and a very small number of them.

The other big question now is will all videos offer this feature or will it be limited to select videos that YouTube pre-scanned? Also, will this feature be limited to YouTube Premium? We will have to wait and find out when the feature is fully announced.

YouTube also recently announced that they are going to make YouTube a little more educational. Now, YouTube has started to roll out quizzes that creators can make about their videos. After you watch an educational video, you can now have the option to take a quiz on what you watched to see if you learned anything.

Here is how YouTube says creators can add quizzes to their videos:


If you choose to add a quiz "" to your post:

  1. Enter a question in the text field.
  2. Enter answers in the “Answer” fields. Answers can be up to 80 characters each.
  3. If you need more answer fields, tap Add answer. You can have up to 4 answers.
  4. Select the correct answer. You can add an optional explanation for why this is the correct answer in the text field. Explanations can be 350 characters max.

Note: You can only have one correct answer on quizzes.
