After experimenting with Picture-in-Picture (PiP) on iPhone and desktop video downloads, YouTube is back with a new experiment to allow Premium subscribers to get Google Assistant integration into the YouTube mobile app for Android. Entitled ‘Do More With Assistant’, you can enable the feature and try it out now if you are a paid YouTube Premium member.
Get Google Integration Assistant on YouTube for Android
With Google Assistant integration, you get suggestions on video-related topics you are currently watching. This could include information about people in the video or movie trailer, and tap on it which will take you to the Help page. You could say it’s the same as IMDb X-Ray found in Amazon Prime Video.
If you’re interested in trying it out, tap on your profile picture in the top right corner of the YouTube app and go to ‘Premium Benefits’ alt. From the next page, press ‘Try new features’ to access the YouTube labs page.
Seo, Find an ‘Do More with an Assistant’ experiment and press the ‘Try Again’ button. Note that you can only try one feature at a time. Hence, if you already have video downloads enabled on YouTube desktop, that will no longer work. If you want to proceed, tap on ‘Try it Out’ again in the confirmation prompts.
As you can see in the image below, you now get a new Google Assistant panel with details about the video. You can click the preview to see more details in Google Assistant.
The YouTube experiment ‘Do more with Assistant’ is available on Android phones in English. You can try that experiment until October 27th. We’ll have to wait a few months for YouTube to bring this feature to every Premium subscriber or every user, perhaps.
