YouTube, which is preparing to activate the video dubbing feature, will also add podcasts to YouTube Music.
YouTube has announced that it is rolling out dubbing support, which allows creators to add dubbing to their new and existing videos. With this feature, both content creators will reach a wider audience and the number of views of YouTube videos will increase.
While the dubbing feature is built in-house, creators must partner directly with third-party dubbing providers to create the audio tracks. It is stated that viewers can choose a different audio track from the same menu after the videos are uploaded and currently adjust other settings such as subtitles or audio quality. It is up to the creators to choose which language they want to add to the videos.
One of the first to try the dubbing feature was MrBeast channel owner Jimmy Donaldson. In this context, Donaldson voiced his 11 most popular videos in 11 languages. For example, when we click on this video, you can choose any of the available languages from the “audio track” or “audio track” section. When I choose Turkish, I see that it has been dubbed very nicely.
The feature will initially only be supported on YouTube’s long-form content, but the company says the dubbing feature will also come to Shorts videos in the future. This feature will be available on desktop, mobile, tablets and TVs and will be activated globally.
Adding podcasts to YouTube Music
YouTube is also preparing to integrate podcasts into YouTube Music. A YouTube spokesperson said they will soon begin bringing both audio and video priority podcasts to YouTube Music for users in the US; He said they will make podcasts more discoverable and accessible.
Podcasts on YouTube Music will be free to listen to in the background, so even if you lock your phone while listening, the program won’t be interrupted. However, the free service will have ad support. It is not yet clear when the feature will be activated for users outside of the USA.
