Use Autoplay on Home on Android and iOS!
We’ve heard from many of you that you’d like easier ways to preview videos and watch YouTube on-the-go. Over the next few weeks, we’re rolling out a new YouTube app feature called “Autoplay on Home,” which helps you preview videos and watch YouTube on-the-go without audio. This feature has been available for over half a year for YouTube Premium members on Android, and we’ve seen great results. Previewing videos helps you make more informed decisions about whether you want to watch a video, leading to longer engagement with videos you choose to watch!
You can also decide at anytime that Autoplay on Home is not for you and turn the feature off. There’s also an option to only autoplay on WiFi. See our Help Center for detailed instructions.
With Autoplay on Home, captions are now more prominent in the Home feed. Creators – this is great for connecting with your entire audience and giving everyone access to your content. We first launched video captions back in 2006, followed by automated captions in 2009 and we’ve been improving since then. Today, the number of videos with captions now exceeds 2 billion.
We know that automatic captions aren’t perfect, which is why we’ve developed many options for creators to add and edit captions.
Automatic captions: Automatic captions allow us to scale the availability of captions and make YouTube accessible for more people around the globe. We’ve been focused on improving the accuracy of automatic captions, and by improving our speech recognition, machine learning algorithms, and expanding our training data, there’s been a significant leap in accuracy for automatic captions, such as an over 50 percent improvement in English and a 44 percent improvement in Italian, which is getting us closer and closer to human transcription error rates. That said, we know automatic captions are not perfect which is why we always have the option for you to edit automatic captions, by going to video manager, in the Creator Studio, and clicking “edit > subtitles and CC” next to the video that they want to edit and clicking on the automatic captions track. Help Center instructions for removing or editing captions.
Creator-uploaded captions: Creators know their videos best, so consider uploading your own captions. You can add captions to any of your videos at any time by writing them out yourself or by uploading a pre-existing file that includes the captions. These options are accessed by going to Video Manager and clicking “edit > subtitles and CC > Add new subtitles or CC” next to the video that you want to edit. Help Center instructions for adding your own subtitles & closed captions.
Crowd-sourced community captions: The YouTube community can help you reach a larger audience by adding title, description, subtitles, and closed captions to your videos, as well as translating them into additional languages. Captions created by the community are moderated by YouTube and can be reviewed by both you and others before they’re published. You can also edit these captions at anytime. Community contributions are enabled by going to Creator Studio, clicking Translations & Transcriptions > Community Contributions and turning the option on. Help Center instructions for turning on and managing community contributors.

I have a Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvrdvNSvKZAPgXxp1aJjMGA, but why is my channel not yet given a decision, because I have already confirmed my video is Original, and no longer has "DUPLICATION". Please review it immediately and hopefully the youtube team can understand what I feel Now
Success for Team Youtube.
