You Tube Gets Breaking News Section

Keeping up with the news can be quite hard these days. However, YouTube is set to make it easier with a new Breaking News carousel at the top of the desktop and mobile versions of the video streaming website.

According to Android Police, the new breaking news section lists stories from recognized news outlets on the current affairs in your part of the world. If you're not interested in what's happening in the world, you can dismiss the breaking news bar.

YouTube usually runs trials and tests with different features on the site, however, these trials are quite limited. This new feature on the other hand, seems to be more widespread, but hasnt rolled out to everyone just yet. We are also not clear if the breaking news section only appears when there is actually any breaking news to talk about.

You can check out the feature on the  desktop or mobile versions of YouTube to see for yourself if the breaking news section has appeared. It also appears to be live in the official YouTube apps for iOS and Android as well.
