A new feature for YouTube creators will allow them to make changes to their videos after they go live.
Users can now correct existing videos in a way that is immediately visible while watching the video.
When users add a correction to a YouTube video, a card will appear at the time of the error.
The ability to draw attention to corrections during the video itself is new with this release.
With YouTube video corrections, users can notify viewers when there is an error in a video and direct them to the description section where the clarification is provided.
Previously, the only way to fix a mistake in a published video was to delete it, edit it, and then re-upload it.
Because all watch time and engagement metrics were lost in the process, the old solution caused more problems than it solved.
Instead, if YouTube creators choose to address their mistakes, they usually do so by including a note in the description or comment section.
However, this is only useful if the viewer scrolls down the page and is useless if the video is embedded on another website.
