YouTube has announced that it is currently testing a new feature that allows you to comment on a specific point in a video so that anyone watching the video can see your comment.
Only a few people have access to the new version of the app right now because it’s an experimental feature. The timestamped comments can be enabled in the mobile YouTube app by selecting the sort button in the comment section beneath a video. When comments are enabled, they will appear as the video’s progression bar moves through the timestamps.
This feature isn’t new to SoundCloud users; it’s been around for a long time, so we’re interested to see how YouTube envisions timestamped comments playing out.
