As part of its commitment to connecting people to high-quality information they can trust, YouTube introduced an immersive watch page experience for news stories on the platform.
The news watch page will pull together content from authoritative sources across video on demand, live streams, podcasts, and Shorts, allowing viewers to deep dive and explore multiple sources and angles. All on one watch page, people will be able to find relevant long-form video, live coverage, and Shorts to quickly catch up.
To open the watch page for a specific news topic, viewers can click on a video with the newspaper icon on the homepage or in search results. This feature is rolling out over time for mobile users in approximately 40 countries, with desktop and living room integration to come. This updated news experience will help viewers access a range of credible and diverse voices when they want to dive into a news topic.
