YouTube Premium users can look forward to these new features


YouTube is cracking down hard on ad blockers. If you’d like to avoid the hassle, then subscribing to YouTube Premium is a good way of getting rid of ads legally. On top of that, there are a bunch of other perks that you get with the subscription. If that wasn’t enough, YouTube has announced several new features for Premium subscribers.

One of those features is called “Jump ahead”. You can always scrub through videos on YouTube. There are also graphs on YouTube that show you the most popular bits. But with this new feature, users can just tap a button to skip to the parts of a video that YouTube’s AI thinks is the “best”.

In addition to the jump ahead feature, YouTube has also announced that Premium subscribers can now enjoy YouTube Shorts in picture-in-picture mode. This lets you minimize the YouTube app on your phone without interrupting your Shorts video while you do something else.

There are also other new features for YouTube Premium including conversational AI. On paper this sounds pretty cool. Users can ask the AI questions about a video they’re watching or ask it to recommend something. This could be useful if the YouTube algorithm or search isn’t giving you what you want.
