continuing with what it's calling "one of the biggest redesigns in YouTube history" and today it wants to point out some of its new, shiny features. The streaming video site first offered its users a sneak peek last month and it says it's been listening to feedback and it now has three new features it wants to show off.YouTube is
First, YouTube has introduced a new playlist design, which shows all of your queued videos above the video your watching, with decently sized thumbnails to preview the content. It also has an AutoPlay feature that it says it will set to on when it has "a robust set of videos for you to watch next".
Next, our favorite new feature is the queuing from search capability, which allows you to add videos to your queue when you search from the video page. We know that when we go on a bender of Kids In The Hall clips, we don't want to wait too long between our head crushing and our "girl drink drunk". You can even search without stopping the video you're watching and if you don't know what to watch next, YouTube may just queue up some classics for you automatically.
Last comes an addition to a section of YouTube not exactly known for its intelligence - the comments. The comments section will now list both text and video, so that video updates become a bigger and more integrated part of the discussion. This seems like a natural and necessary progression, but if the videos are anything like the text, we can only imagine where this will end up.
