This will allow to see and discover new publishers and creators easily than ever. YouTube is trying to increase interaction obviously. Only a small group of users can see this change now.
Interesting part of this news is that will be automatically based on “a range of signals”.
‘featured in this video‘ section on Android: to make it easier to discover new creators and subscribe to their channels, we’re testing out a “featured in this video” section right below the video you’re watching – it will highlight creators who are featured in the video (based on a range of signals about the video) and include links to the featured creator’s channel with the option to subscribe. We’re starting this experiment with a diverse group of top searched creators across various categories on YouTube, and only a small percentage of viewers using the YouTube Android app will see the feature while we gather feedback.YouTube
