YouTube has begun introducing a new feature to help users “discover new creators and fresh content” on its platform. The “New for You” tab is now available on the YouTube page on all devices – including Android phones and smart TVs from leading brands.
To try the personalized feature, all you have to do is tap “New for you” on the theme bar, reports Android central. If you don’t see the theme bar on your phone, try refreshing the YouTube homepage. You may also see the “New for you” query as you navigate through the feed in the mobile app. Needless to say, you won’t be able to see the new card if you’re not signed in to your Google Account.
In addition to videos related to topics that interest you, the new tab will also recommend content that may be slightly different from what you normally watch on YouTube. In a way, it’s pretty similar to the “For You” page on TikTok.
Announcing this feature, TeamYouTube’s Meaghan wrote in a post on the YouTube Help page:
“ You told us you want to see new creators and new videos once you understand your recommendations, so hopefully this new option will keep things going fresh while helping creators connect with a new audience! ”
The “New for You” feature comes less than a month after YouTube introduced new subtitles and audio tools to improve accessibility on its platform. YouTube has also recently made it easier to continue watching unfinished videos from your phone on your computer with the new “Continue Watching” option in the YouTube web mini player.
