YouTube has announced some new features for Premium subscribers, including skipping ahead to key moments, picture-in-picture in Shorts, smart downloads for offline viewing, and more.

All of this builds on a major milestone you helped us cross earlier this year, with over 100 million YouTube Music and Premium subscribers worldwide! If you're not a Premium subscriber yet, join today to dive even deeper into the latest and greatest from your favorite artists and creators.

Take a look at the new features below!

Jump ahead to your next favorite moments on YouTube

It's now that much easier for you to skip ahead to the best parts of a video. Now, when you double-tap to skip ahead, you'll see a 'jump ahead' button that'll take you right where you want to go.

This feature, powered by a combination of AI and viewership data, is now available to all US Premium subscribers on Android. And good news for iOS users – it's coming to you in the next few weeks!

Introducing an uninterrupted experience on YouTube Shorts

Get ready to multitask like a pro with our new picture-in-picture feature for YouTube Shorts! On Android devices, you can watch your favorite Shorts while browsing other apps or checking messages. It's perfect for staying entertained without missing a beat. Dive into endless fun with YouTube Shorts, now more flexible than ever!

Early access to the latest experimental features

Premium subscribers get a first look at some of the new features being testing on YouTube through youtube.com/new. Opt-in to experience the latest in layouts, assistive AI, and the newest functionality for YouTube Shorts. Here's what's available to subscribers now:

● Smart downloads for YouTube Shorts: Say goodbye to FOMO on YouTube Shorts! With smart downloads, you'll automatically get a fresh batch of entertaining Shorts downloaded to your phone, ready to watch whenever you're offline. Whether you're riding the subway or jetsetting on Airplane Mode, you'll always stay connected with your next favorite Shorts.
● Conversational AI : YouTube's conversational AI experience is back on Android devices in the US! For those unfamiliar, this assistive tool can answer questions, suggest related content, and more, all without interrupting your playback experience. You can access the tool by tapping "Ask" beneath select videos and begin by asking questions about the video or selecting a suggested prompt.
● Redesigned Watch Page: You can now experiment with a redesigned watch page we're building on web to improve your viewing experience and make it easier for you to find related content and engage with comments.
