YouTube brings AI-powered 'Jump ahead' feature to Premium users

YouTube has introduced a new AI feature called “Jump ahead” to improve user experience. Originally tested in March, it is now accessible to Premium subscribers at youtube.com/new. This innovative addition simplifies the viewing process by allowing users to jump to the most important parts of a video with a double tap.

YouTube's 'Jump ahead' feature allows users to jump straight to the most relevant parts of a video with a double tap. It goes beyond just ten second skips and takes users to segments that align with where most viewers tend to skip ahead. This feature highlights YouTube's AI use and viewing data to identify crucial moments for a seamless viewing experience.

When you tap the 'Jump Forward' button, a notification overlay will appear with the YouTube Premium badge to confirm the action. A “Jump over an often-skipped section” message will appear, assuring users that they will be taken to the next essential part of the video. This visual notification improves accessibility and engagement for users.

How can users access the 'Skip Forward' feature?

YouTube first rolled out this feature as a test, but it is now accessible to more users via the youtube.com/new experiments page. However, it is only available in the mobile app. Interested people can try it out by going to Settings > Try Experimental New Features. 9to5Google reports that this feature is currently for the YouTube Android app and only applies to English videos in the US. Additionally, its availability depends on specific video metrics, such as high view counts.

Currently, the 'Jump Forward' feature is only available accessible to YouTube Premium members, with a planned end date of June 1. However, due to the potential and positive feedback, YouTube may consider extending availability beyond this date. YouTube's bold decision adapts to the changing preferences of its users. Moreover, it also shows its commitment to using technology to enhance the viewing experience.
