YouTube Launches New Health Feature in India to Highlight, Identify Videos From Verified Sources

YouTube brings two new health -focused features to ensure the credibility of health information on its platform in India. Google’s video sharing app has launched a new health resource information panel that will label videos from trusted health organizations and government entities. With this, users can identify data from verified sources. In addition, YouTube Health has added a new health content shelf that highlights videos from authoritative sources in search results. Both of these new features will be available in English and Hindi.

YouTube on Thursday announced the launch of a new health resource information panel and health content shelf in India. The health resource information panel feature will identify videos from the original source and label them. The goal is that users searching for health -related content on YouTube will be able to retrieve videos from accredited health organizations and government entities immediately. With health content shelf functionality, videos from certified sources will appear as search results on the platform. Videos related to accredited health organizations and government entities are eligible for this shelf.

YouTube said that it used principles developed by a panel of experts called by the U.S. National Academy of Medicine (NAM) to show these resources for two new health -focused features.

In a press release, the company has quoted the Oxford Economics Impact Report 2021 and said that YouTube has become an indispensable part of the lives of millions of Indians. As many as 69 percent of users say that YouTube has been a reliable source of information since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, he added.

YouTube is actively looking to add new features to the platform. Earlier this year, it was seen testing a new Smart Downloads feature that allows users to access content without relying on a data connection. It can download videos automatically when the Android device is connected to Wi-Fi. The Smart Download feature can download 20 recommended videos per week. It is reportedly available as a trial feature for limited customers for a limited time. In a similar development, YouTube is said to be launching a Listening Control feature for Premium users on Android and iOS. This new feature gives users additional control while listening to music on the platform.
