YouTube cards—YouTube videos now interactive through maps
Video creators complained and YouTube listened. Since March 2015, creators should find it easier to accompany comments and information to their videos. Through infocards, it is possible to place a link directly in the video.
Comments can be retrieved from an information icon on the top right of a video. Websites can be linked, donations started, or merchandised can be referenced thanks to this. The infocards enable links to videos and playlists. A notable example is the implementation of information cards on mobile devices. They are as visually appealing as the video itself and are available at any time during the video playback. Although the whole thing is still in its beta phase, it is already online and will continue to develop quietly.
The autoplay function is another new YouTube feature. This is located right above the next-video list. Music fans should be pleased, because the autoplay feature begins automatically playing the next video after the first one is finished. By clicking on this button, the function is very easy to activate or deactivate.
