YouTube is testing (artificial intelligence) AI auto-generated summaries on the platform, the Google-owned company announced.

The company said on the ‘YouTube test features and experiments’ page that the new feature will make it easier for users to read a quick summary about a video and decide whether it is the right fit for them.

“To begin with, you may see these summaries on watch and search pages.”

These summaries do not replace video descriptions, which are written by creators, the company noted.

“This experiment is running only with a limited number of videos (in English only) and viewers, so if you see the feature, let us know what you think by sending feedback!” the platform said.

It was testing AI-generated quizzes on the mobile app Home Feed, which the video-sharing platform had announced last month.

This feature aims to help users learn about topics they’re interested in.

To allow users to disable touch input while watching a video on Android and iOS, YouTube is also testing a new lock screen feature.

It will help prevent accidental taps causing pauses, skips, or disruptions of the video.

Moreover, YouTube had announced that it was testing a new feature that allows users to easily watch videos at 2x speed.

Users, with this feature, can long-press anywhere on the player while watching a video to automatically bump the playback speed to 2x.

YouTube was also testing another feature that provides bigger previews to users while they search.

To find the exact moment in the video that they want to watch, this feature will be helpful, as it will make it easier for the users.
