YouTube’s product chief helps safeguard and expand the platform
[SOUND] So protecting kids on YouTube is really the highest order bit, the paramount responsibility that we have.
Oftentimes the videos are uploaded innocently, but they might be consumed in a predatory fashion.
We want to eliminate that from happening in our platform.
We eliminated comments from Millions of videos, even though Comments has been a core feature of YouTube since the very early days, Because we didn't want any predatory comments on those videos that might otherwise had been at risk of those.
We're focused on creating products that allow creators to generate revenue, but also build their communities at the same time.
So for example, Super Chat is a way for creators and fans to connect more deeply, but also for a way for creators to generate New revenue channel memberships is the same thing where creators can create new products and fun ways to interact with their most ardent supporters but also generate revenue in the process.
Music has always been one of the core use cases at YouTube.
It feels like the app really knows the user, the recommendations.
And I have this experience myself when I'm commuting to work.
The recommendations that YouTube gives me are on the money not just in terms of my interest, but also In terms of the context that I'm in, whether I'm commuting or working out, or just working and listening to music.
We have this way of connecting fans with artist, just like we connect fans, With creators all across the world, we wanna connect fans with their favorite musicians with their artists.
This is something that not only our users on YouTube lab on YouTube music lab but our artists lab it is well because this really know filter between them and their fans when they're engaging on YouTube.
