YouTube Rolls Out 'Breaking News' Feed On Desktop Site And Mobile Apps

  • YouTube feed now has "Breaking News" section across all platforms for many

For those who like to stuff their heads in the sand and are happy to simply use YouTube to watch old wrestling clips of The Rock (aka me), you can also turn off the feature. The video service is working to counter that would show how many people are simultaneously watching video.

YouTube, the popular video streaming site has recently launched its new breaking news section feature in user feeds across all the platforms.

Android Police reports that it's unclear whether "Breaking News" will appear every day or just during particularly newsworthy moments in time.

YouTube has yet to make any official comment on the Breaking News carousel, but expect word to surface next week. However, this should not irritate the users with its creepy and unuseful videos.

To give the feature a try now, first go to youtube.com/new and opt in. YouTube has been serving people across the globe from 2005 with billions of videos without getting any sum in return.

Until now, YouTube has focused mainly on user-generated videos and children's content.

It's not yet known whether Google is populating this section algorithmically or whether it will be hiring a team of editors to curate the news.

The new icon is similar to what would appear when you see a recommended channel.
