    YouTube Testing New Feature To Shop Directly From Videos

    YouTube is one of the most popular video-sharing platforms that makes it easy to watch online videos. It also allow users to create videos and upload their videos to share with others. YouTube was created in 2005 and is now become one of the most popular sites on the web, with visitors watching around 6 billion of videos every month.

    Now, YouTube is testing new feature that lets users shop from the platform. This feature lets users buy products they see in videos directly from the platform. The feature is currently being tested by the video-streaming platform with a small number of users in the US on Android, iOS, and the Web.

    Currently, the platform uses links in the form of cards and banners to help creators interact with the audience and provide relevant references through other YouTube videos. The new feature would give creators to sell their products on YouTube itself.

    According to the report, only a select few creators are part of the pilot program to access direct shopping links within a YouTube video. YouTube started asking creators to use YouTube software to tag and track products featured in the videos. 

    The data will be linked to Google's shopping tools and analytics, as per the report. The report said that a YouTube spokesperson had confirmed that the platform was testing the features with a limited number of video channels and that creators would have control over the products that are displayed.

    However, there were no words, when YouTube will expand this feature in other regions. But it is clear that YouTube will roll out this feature soon.
