YouTube on Android now allows users to share video chapters directly. YouTube added chapters functionality to videos final year that marked out different parts of the video — as an example, Gadgets 360 review videos have chapters for such things as performance, or design, so you’ll be able to hop to these parts whether that’s all you’re interested in. With the new update, Android users can share a chapter slightly than sending a link that starts at the beginning of the video. The resulting link contains the timestamp of the chapter, so people who get the link will go directly to the part you shared. Earlier, this was once only conceivable when the usage of the YouTube website on your PC.
YouTube’s chapters show up as markers on the video seek bar and contain titles, indicating the end and beginning of chapters, making it easier for the viewer to hop to a sure point in the video with no need to scrub through the timeline, and the feature was once spotted by Android Police.
Till now, there was once no way of sharing a video link with a specific timestamp through the app that would allow the recipient to begin the video from precisely where you wanted.
How to share a YouTube video chapter on Android
Android users can share links to chapters in videos through the YouTube app. To take action:
Tap on the name of the chapter which shows correct above the video seek bar and you are going to see a list of chapters with a share icon next to them.
Then, tap the share icon for the specific chapter you wish to have and use one of the most many modes of sharing to send the video to someone.
The recipient will receive the YouTube link with a timestamp that will start the video precisely from that timestamp.
The feature was once spotted by Android Police on Tuesday, but in its article, it suggests that the feature could have rolled out as early as May with app version 16.20.35. We tested the feature on app version 16.24.33. In case you’ll be able to’t see the new link share feature on the YouTube Android app, try updating it.
