YouTube tests reactions for videos


Platform reactions, in all their forms, are starting to arrive in more and more programs. Here is also that YouTube is no exception, and while all users take advantage of the reactions on different social networks, and are clamoring for their integration on WhatsApp , the team of the streaming platform has thought of providing this possibility to users.


Let’s talk about the opportunity to be able to interact with videos in a decidedly more interesting way. Until today, the platform has allowed everyone to leave likes, dislikes and comments to provide their feedback to the authors, but thanks to the feature currently in the testing phase, you will be able to share emojis based on your status at an exact moment in the video. Everything has been enabled for a few users and we are not yet in the release phase, which fortunately could become imminent following the tests, as is also true for the few enabled videos.

Watching the videos you have the opportunity to see the reactions of other users by opening the comments section and the reactions panel, which reveals in which moments all the other community members reacted in a specific moment of the video, with everything however anonymous, thus allowing the platform to provide only generic numbers.

At the moment, there are not many emojis , and the giant will certainly be able to improve the functionality by continuing to work on it in view of the final release, obviously hoping that this is not particularly far away. We will therefore have to wait to try this new feature to improve the interaction between users and between video authors, which seems to be able to break down the barriers of screens more and more, making the viewing of content more interesting .
