YouTube has announced several new features for its Premium subscribers, including Jump Ahead. These changes are aimed at improving the viewing experience and providing more ways to watch content.

The main new feature is called “Jump Ahead.” It lets users jump to the most interesting parts of a video with a single tap. YouTube uses artificial intelligence and data to figure out the best moments in a video, including which parts of a video people watch the most. Jump Ahead is currently available to Android users in the US and will soon be available to iPhone users.

Another big change for YouTube Shorts is picture-in-picture. This allows Android users to watch short videos in a small floating window while using other apps. Users can now multitask like texting or checking email without pausing their Shorts.

YouTube is also testing some experimental features that Premium members can try out:

– Smart Download for Shorts automatically saves short videos to watch offline later

– A conversational AI assistant that can answer questions about videos and suggest related content

– New design for the video watch page on computers, making it easier to find related videos and comments

These updates are exclusive to YouTube Premium subscribers. YouTube Premium removes ads, offers offline viewing, and includes YouTube Music. In the US, it costs $11.99 per month.

The new features are aimed at people with short attention spans who like to multitask. They make it easier to quickly find interesting content and watch videos while still doing other things.

YouTube did not say when these features would come to other countries. The company hopes the new benefits will prompt more people to pay for premium as it tries to increase subscribers.
