Earlier on youtube, we use to create a timestamp for our videos which we do manually by ourselves.

And it’s a very hectic process why?

Because we need to watch the entire video and then add timestamps to our video which is a very time taking process and very boring process.

But not anymore.

In this article, we will let you know that now you don’t have to add timestamps anymore and how youtube will do it for you.

So, let’s get started.

What Is Youtube Automatic Video Chapters?

Before knowing what is automatic video chapters you should know about what is timestamp?

The timestamp is a way through which you can tell your users or give them a time frame such that if a user wants to watch a specific path they can directly watch that part of the video which eventually make the user watch your video and not bounce back, whereas before if your videos were long and if a user wants a specific topic to watch they can’t and they left your video.

That’s why youtube introduces the timestamp feature.

And not only that timestamp also helps a video to rank on different keywords either on youtube or on google.

But the sad part is that if you have to make a timestamp then you need to watch the entire video and then make a timestamp for those videos.
