As explained by YouTube Creator Insider host Tom Leung:
"If you have timestamps in your description, make sure that the first timestamp listed in the video description starts at 0:00, and that your video has at least three timestamps or chapters, with each chapter being 10 seconds or longer."
YouTube chapters are now available to everyone who uploads a video and can be added simply by listing the right time-stamp details in your video description.
For creators, chapters will give them the ability to highlight different segments of the video according to name and for viewers, you can easily distinguish which part of the video you'd like to skip to based on the titles.
Do you think this feature will impact creators who promote products via videos?
