YouTube has announced that it is currently testing a new feature that will allow you to comment on the video for a certain amount of time so that anyone who watches it can see your comment at the relevant time in the video.
As this is currently only an experimental feature, few users have access to the new version of the app. The timestamped comments can be activated using the “Sort” button in the comments area under a video in the YouTube mobile app. When enabled, comments will be displayed as the progress bar at the bottom of the video moves through the timestamps.
This feature isn’t new to SoundCloud users as it has been around for ages. We’re excited to see YouTube’s vision of timestamped comments and how they would play out.
