Recently, YouTube started trialling what it calls Chapters. These are key points within videos that allow you to separate it up into segments. The best part about it was that it allows YouTubers to start planning for it in advance as it utilises existing techniques that YouTubers have been using for years to help their audience navigate their content.
Essentially it uses timestamp lists in the description of the video in order to generate these chapters which show up when you more over the timeline on the YouTube website or scrub through it in the YouTube mobile app. It’s a handy tool for both creators and viewers. Now, as a result of positive feedback, YouTube says this is now a new permanent feature.
