YouTube today announced a new initiative called Creator Preview, a video series in which the Google-owned company shares what features it is working on for creators. In the first video, YouTube reveals it is building a mobile app just for creators, a feature that lets fans directly contribute funds to creators, and a “way to harness the power of the crowd to create captions and subtitles for your videos in 60+ languages.”
As you can see above, YouTube doesn’t actually show off any of the features in the video: it merely interviews a few engineers about why they think these are necessary additions. Nevertheless, now you know what’s coming, and Google is asking for your feedback on Google+ and Twitter.
YouTube says it will be releasing these videos “regularly,” but stopped short of revealing exactly how often. We’ll keep you posted as the company shares more, and as the aforementioned features become available.
