YouTube announces new features to improve its news experience

For starters, parent company Google will begin to include links to text news articles after users search YouTube during a breaking news event. Earlier in the YouTube address received lots of comments, in which users complained about disinformationist many videos.

According to Mohan, YouTube starts to display information from third parties such as Wikip and Encyclopaedia Britannica, and video clips on well-established historical and scientific topics.

YouTube is investing 25 million dollars in grants to news organizations that want to grow their video operations, part of a larger 300 million-dollar program sponsored by YouTube's sister company, Google.

To help with this contextualization, YouTube will also be teaming up with a variety of organizations that are dedicated to digital literacy education, particularly with MediaWise, which aims to help a million U.S. teens discern legitimate sources from fake news.

At the NY event, Mr Mohan said everything is still in the early stages, when pressed to explain how YouTube would determine what was an authoritative source.

In addition, it will create new features in the U.S.to boost the distribution of local news.

He acknowledged the problems that have cropped up in the wake of school shootings and other tragedies, when videos full of conspiracy theories and other nonsense were served up to unsuspecting viewers.

"It's very easy to quickly produce and upload low-quality videos spreading misinformation around a developing news event", Mohan said.

Among the many changes YouTube announced Monday are substantive tweaks to the tools it uses to recommend news-related videos.

YouTube today announced that it is working to offer a better news experience for its subscribers.

To make sure users are getting the most accurate information, YouTube's new algorithm won't show a video first. These two new features are now available in 17 countries including the U.S., U.K., France, Italy, Japan, India, Mexico, Brazil, South Africa, Nigeria, and more. YouTube expects the number to double over the coming months.

YouTube content creators, including John Green, Ingrid Nilsen and Mark Watson, will be working with MediaWise to bring awareness to digital literacy and help educate with teens.

"We remain committed to working with the journalism community to build a more sustainable video ecosystem for news organisations", the company continued.
