Tech giant Google continues to roll out new features and improvements to the biggest online streaming website YouTube. Just recently saw how the platform got the much powerful picture-in-picture feature that minimized the video playback when you scroll down through the page. Likewise, the company introduced hashtags in video titles, video recommendation based on user likes and much more in the recent past.
Now the company is testing out ways to give users much more control over videos that are in the auto-playlist that is curated by YouTube its self-based upon the suggested videos that it believes the user would be interested to watch. Though there is very little users could do about that queue in case they’re not interested in the suggestions apart from turning the feature off. This is the feature where you’d notice ‘Up Next’ in the right column which plays the video one after another.
This list of videos is currently curated based on user interests and other metrics taken into consideration though now the company is aiming to give more control to the users in this regard. With the new filters that the user would be able to pick like ‘Suggestions, Related and Recommended for you. Once any of this filter is selected, YouTube curate playlist differently.
Currently, this feature isn’t live for everyone yet and it seems YouTube is testing out upon this. Have you this update yet on your end? Let us know in the comment section below.
