YouTube Now Shows You Auto-Generated Key Moments in Videos on TVs





Do you ever watch a YouTube video only to have most of it be not what you thought it was? YouTube now offers key moments from videos allowing you to skip over boring parts and get right to the part you want to watch on smart TVs.

This feature is not new. YouTube has used it to show key moments in games on YouTube TV. YouTube has also been testing an AI system that would allow YouTube Premium subscribers to automatically skip forward to the most important part of a video. This new feature will help you skip over long parts not relevant to what you are looking for.

Google already uses similar AI systems to help you find relevant parts of videos in Google search. Looking for how to repair some parts of your car? You may have noticed how Google will recommend a specific chapter of a YouTube video about that issue instead of the whole video. Now, it seems something similar is coming to YouTube.

Here is Google’s announcement about this feature:

Google is hoping this feature will attract more YouTube viewers to pay for YouTube Premium. For now, this is just a beta test and may or may not roll out to all YouTube Premium members depending on how the test goes. Google has in the past tested other features only for it to not see a full rollout after the beta test ended.
