  • YouTube app on TV is rolling out an auto-generated key moments feature across all videos.
  • The service will automatically generate key points across the video timeline, making it easier for TV users to jump through the highlight points of a video.

YouTube is a great way to watch free TV shows on your big screen in the comfort of your home. However, watching videos on your TV comes with its own challenges as opposed to watching them on a personal device like a phone or a tablet. Unlike mobile devices, a TV has no touch interface, and you have to rely on your TV remote for navigation. YouTube has been making a bunch of changes to its TV app, recognizing the uniqueness of the platform it operates on, and this latest change is designed to make it easier for you to cut through the fluff and get to the best parts of the video you are watching.

YouTube CEO Mr. Neal Mohan has announced that the YouTube app on TVs will now auto-generate key moments in a video, and users will be able to access them on any video easily. This will make it easy to check out the best bits in a video without contending with iffy progress bars and accurately seeking out the right moment with a TV remote.
