We want to make it easier for people watching videos to find comments in the YouTube app without having to scroll through “Up Next” videos, so we’re testing out a new comment section that appears directly below the video. The new section will show up to 3 comments, with an option to view all comments while you continue to watch the video – just like you can today. 

We’re still in the experimental phase with a small percentage of people to gather feedback, and the design may change over time.  Please let us know what you think via our official Feedback tool.


Here are some FAQs in case you have more questions: 

VIEWER FAQ
Q: Which comments will show up in this new comments section?
A: We consider a variety of viewer and creator signals, for example, how recently the comment was posted, or if the comment is pinned by a creator. This design may change over time based on your feedback, so let us know what you think via our official Feedback tool

Q: How do I view all comments?
A: If you’re a part of this experiment, you can tap anywhere in the new comments section to view and scroll through all comments, while you continue to watch the video.


CREATOR FAQ
Q: Will my pinned comments show in the new section?
A: If you have a pinned comment, it will show up in this section if it meets additional criteria. We consider a variety of viewer and creator signals that may prevent your pinned comment from showing, some examples include, if the comment contains a link, if it is more than 140 characters, or appears to be self-promotional. When a viewer taps to view all comments, pinned comments will continue to always show as the first comment.

Q: Do my current comment moderation settings still apply to the new comment section?
A: Yes! All comment moderation settings still apply to the new section, including blocked words and hide users. Learn more about how to manage and moderate your comments

Q: Will everyone watching my video see the new comment section?
A: No, only people in the experiment who are also watching your video will see this new comment section.

This is really time-saving, instead of just scrolling down till you see the comments. It would also be great if you add Oldest First on the filters.

New comment section is horrible, most times I can't even open the section to comment and other times it kicks me out midsentence. I have found that if I am watching a video and I go to hit the comment section to open it it's a hit or miss thing with most times it not opening unless I get out of the video completely and go back in. That is provided that a commercial isn't playing because if it is I cannot access comments at all. It's very annoying to have to click in and out of a video just so I can access comments. When i use my back button i am taken out of comments while in a thread which is always been how i get out of a thread but stay in comments but not anymore. And if i am commenting midsentence and a commercial comes on i get kicked out of comment section. It's super annoying and pointless to keep it this way.
