YouTube will soon let you skip to the best part of a video


The problem with some YouTube videos is that the bit that got you to click is somewhere in the middle of the video. Or it could be at the start, or it could be towards the end. Basically, you don't know. This is why we're pretty interested in a new feature YouTube is working on that lets you skip to the best part.


According to a report from Android Headlines, YouTube is working on an experimental feature called "Jump Ahead". It is currently only available to users on YouTube Premium. What it does is that YouTube will analyze a video to determine which is the "best" part, and then users can just skip directly to it.


At the moment, YouTube does offer certain markers to show which part of a video is the most watched. It isn't always available, but it is useful when it is available. This feature seems like an expansion of that, except that you can now just skip directly to it. We're not sure if YouTube plans to eventually roll it out to non-Premium users in the future.


It could be a new feature that will encourage people to subscribe to its Premium service, but we can't say for sure. Either way, it's something to look out for in the future. If you're a Premium subscriber, you might see the feature under the "Try Experimental Features" section of the website, but if you don't, then you're probably not part of the test group.
