YouTube experiments with AI chatbot under some videos – IT Pro – News

YouTube will test an AI chatbot under certain videos. According to Google, this chatbot can, for example, answer questions about the video and the topic the video is about. There will also be an AI function that organizes comments under different topics.

The ‘conversational AI chatbot’ will be available to some users under select videos, Google writes on its support website. Users can chat with the AI ​​tool while watching the video, without having to pause the video. In addition to answering questions, the AI ​​chatbot can also recommend related content. For ‘certain academic videos’, the bot can also ask quiz questions and answer questions in more depth.

In addition, YouTube is testing a feature that categorizes large comment sections of long videos under specific themes. The platform shows an example with a MrBeast video. For example, the feature shows comments under the categories “People love Bryan the bird,” “Lazarbeam should be in more videos,” and a category called “not a submarine.”

Both features are currently undergoing limited testing. Users with a YouTube Premium subscription may be able to register for the experiments. The chatbot is only being tested in the United States. It is not known if and when the features will be available to all users.
