YouTube's YouChat feature on mobile app

Tap into the latest features from YouTube Premium

Back in April, we asked a simple question: “Are you making the most of your YouTube Premium subscription?” Here’s a quick recap in case you missed it: you can now queue content on phones and tablets, watch YouTube with friends on Meet Live Sharing and use an enhanced version of 1080p. This comes alongside our core offerings of ads-free, offline, background play and an uninterrupted music listening experience through the YouTube Music app (which has added several new exciting features recently — check them out!)

With 80 million Premium members and trialers globally, today, we’re excited to build on that momentum and share what we’ve been working on:

Early access to experimental features

Premium members get a first look into some of the exciting features coming to YouTube through We’re especially excited to share that we’re currently providing early access to two new AI experiments, including our first-ever conversational AI tool. Here’s what’s available:

  • Conversational AI: Starting today, Premium members can be one of the first to try out our new experimental conversational AI tool that we hope will make your viewing experience that much better. Think of this as your tool that can answer questions, suggest related content, and more, all without interrupting your playback experience. This feature is currently only available in English to a limited number of YouTube Premium members in the United States on Android devices. If you sign up quickly for one of the limited spots, you can access the tool by tapping “Ask” beneath select videos and begin by asking questions about the video or selecting a suggested prompt.

  • Comment topics summarized by AI: We’re also experimenting with AI that organizes large comment sections of long-form videos into digestible themes, helping you more easily understand and participate in comment conversations. Creators can use these comment summaries to more quickly jump into comment discussions on their videos, or to draw inspiration for new content based on what their audiences are discussing.
