  • YouTube is experimenting with a new quiz feature on specific educational videos in English.
  • The service will test the user’s understanding of the subject matter based on a recently watched video.
  • These quizzes will be generated with AI.

YouTube is one of the most used apps on our phones. The service became this popular on the back of creators creating all sorts of content. For a good chunk of YouTube’s userbase, the platform is an easy way to learn something new, whether it be a new craft or a programming language, or just finding out how to tie a tie in 30 seconds or solving a Rubik’s cube in 10. YouTube hopes you’ve learned something new, and the platform is now experimenting with AI-generated quizzes for the same.

YouTube’s test features and experiments page was updated recently to share more information about the use of AI in these quizzes. A small percentage of viewers will see AI-generated quizzes on the YouTube mobile app’s Home feed on Android and iOS. These quizzes will test your understanding of a subject covered in an educational video you have recently watched.

To make it easier for people to learn about topics they’re interested in, we’re experimenting with AI-generated quizzes on the YouTube mobile app Home feed. If you’re a viewer in the experiment, you may see these AI-generated quizzes start to pop up on your app homepage. The quizzes will test your understanding of a subject covered in a video you recently watched.

If you choose to participate in the quiz, the recently watched video that prompted the quiz will be linked under it, so you can easily navigate back to learn more about the topic.

Google says this experiment is rolling out globally to a small percentage of iOS and Android users of the YouTube app. These quizzes will be tied to a few educational videos in English.

YouTube runs many of these experiments occasionally, and they are just that. Some of these could be well-received by the audience and graduate towards becoming a staple feature of the platform. Many of them don’t make the cut, and that’s fine too.

In other news, the platform has also been testing a three-strikes ad-blocking policy. It’s also working on a new Lock Screen feature for YouTube Premium and a new cloud gaming service.
