YouTube is testing a new change that shifts the comments from the bottom of a video’s listing page to a separate window.
It’s only been seen in India, which has been described as being the test bed for a lot of new features for YouTube and Google Maps.
Users seeing the change gets a message at the bottom of the screen where it is stated that the comments have moved.
Some reactions have come through that this is hiding the comments away from normal people and that’s not entirely wrong but also they think that shortcut makes it quicker and easier for people who live in YouTube comment sections to get there. Now, all you have to do is tap once instead of scrolling severally.
It remains to be seen if this will roll out more widely.
