YouTube adds new Chapters Feature for Long Form Content Creators

For Live Streaming professionals and content creators working with long form content, YouTube is an important platform. With a large number of creators using the platform, navigation is incredibly important for the success of content.

YouTube has been updating their features on the site to accommodate better navigation, and the latest addition is a home run.

YouTube will be rolling out a "Chapters" feature which will help viewers find the section of long form content they are looking for. This means users can scroll for the exact topic they are looking for, and utilize content more efficiently.

Viewers can click on chapters to jump to a specific part of a video and rewatch video clips --  a more convenient alternative to scrubbing. Chapters are visible at the bottom of the video player and show timestamps from the video description. Chapters are optional and will only appear if a video creator chooses to include them. Creators can only use chapters if the first chapter starts at 0:00, the video has at least three time stamps or chapters and if each chapter is at least 10 seconds.
