YouTube will soon make it easier for users to browse through videos by automatically translating video titles, captions, and captions into their native language, according to the report. A new feature on popular video sharing platforms is powered by the Google Translate app.
A few users have reportedly seen this feature, which seems to have been enabled by a server-side change. It can be expected to be available to more users soon. However, only Portuguese and Turkish translations have been identified so far.
Android Police was the first to report a new translation feature approved by some users by YouTube. According to the report, some users have been able to view video titles, captions, and captions from English to Portuguese and English to Turkish.
As mentioned, the new feature takes the help of Google Translate to automatically translate text, which can help users to browse videos more easily. The report said the feature is available to both YouTube Web users and mobile app users.
Recently, YouTube started allowing content creators on its platform to change their name and profile pictures with YouTube Studio without changing the same details in their Google accounts.
This has obviously been a much-needed feature for content creators and has been released with a server-side update from April 22nd. However, creators with a certified badge will have to re-apply it after changing their profile on YouTube.
On YouTube-related issues, the video sharing platform is releasing a beta version of YouTube Shorts in the US after testing an app in India. A short feature of YouTube clips for TikTok competitors.
It is very popular in India during its testing phase by collecting more than 6.5 billion views per day. “YouTube also works on people’s ways to make money for the audience at Shorts,” said Todd Sherman, Product Manager at YouTube Shorts.
