YouTube has often come under fire due to inappropriate comments, including words of hatred, sexual harassment, child abuse, etc. Most people are extremely unsatisfied with them and finally, YouTube decided to solve this problem by hiding comments by default.
The video platform is now testing a new feature in the Android app, however, the layout has been seen only on the territory of India. According to XDA Developers, the innovation will hide comments from sight unless you press a button to expose them. The button will be located near the video title between the “Dislike” and “Share” buttons. You can see an example in the picture below:
The Verge wrote a letter to YouTube asking about the regions where the changes will take place and plans for the layout to the iOS app, desktop, and other devices. The company answered with the following statement:
“We’re always experimenting with ways to help people more easily find, watch, share and interact with the videos that matter most to them. We are testing a few different options on how to display comments on the watch page. ”
