New Delhi: YouTube has unveiled its latest AI experiments, introducing a powerful chatbot AI tool that enhances your video-watching experience. This conversational AI is designed to answer your questions about videos, provide recommendations for related content, and even quiz you on educational videos. Additionally, they’ve launched an AI feature that organizes video comments into specific topics.
This exciting development is part of Google’s broader effort to integrate AI across its services, including Search, Gmail, and office productivity tools. YouTube has already introduced various AI features for video creators, such as AI-generated backgrounds for Shorts, language translation with AI dubbing, and AI-powered suggestions for video topics and audio. There’s even news of an upcoming AI tool that lets users create music in the style of famous musicians.
It’s worth noting that these new AI tools are currently available in limited experiments. The conversational AI tool is currently accessible in English, on select videos, for Android users and US-based Premium subscribers over the age of 18. You can access it by clicking the “Ask” button beneath the video, and it allows you to request video summaries, related content recommendations, and more.
Previously, YouTube experimented with AI-generated video summaries, but this new tool offers a broader range of capabilities, including specific question responses and additional information about the videos you’re watching.
In addition to the conversational AI tool, YouTube has introduced an AI-powered comment categorization feature. This feature is aimed at helping video creators quickly navigate comment discussions and find inspiration for new content based on audience feedback.
