Google Allows Users To Search For Specific Moments In Videos

It is no secret that over the last few years, Google has been looking for a way to upgrade its search function to make it work on more than just text result

It is no secret that over the last few years, Google has been looking for a way to upgrade its search function to make it work on more than just text results. Users have long been able to find videos with Google, but now, we can even see key moments of these videos for a faster scrubbing.

What the company aims at here is to extract the information you need from videos, the kind of content that is not easy to skim through quickly. Here is what the company said about the new feature:

Before this change, all you can see in search results are a list of videos with their thumbnails, but now, Google will display a timeline called “In this video” with “key moments” before you even start watching. There are also some small previews with descriptions, if users want to jump to any specific part of the video, all they have to do is to tap on the preview.

This feature will allow users to skim through the content of a video quickly to see if there is anything interests them. The benefits for those who use screen readers are also noted by Google.

To make this feature possible, Google Search uses the timestamps what YouTube creators provide in the description of the videos. For now, YouTube’s key moments are available in English only, but it will be rolled out to other parts of the world shortly.

Google has indexed Podcasts in its search results

Before this change regarding video searching, Google has indexed Podcasts in its search results. Now, the search can suggest users podcasts based on the actual content of them, not just the title.
