All about YouTube Premieres
With YouTube Premiers, creators can countdown and raise awareness about their upcoming videos. And now the company is introducing three new features for Premiers. It includes trailers, to further boost “real-time, communal experiences.”
Live Direct allows creators to host a live stream just before Premiere airs. It helps in creating a pre-launch hype. It will automatically transition viewers to the main show, once you’re done streaming. YouTube quotes “Just like a red carpet, we’ve seen partners use Live Redirect to engage with their audience.
This creates excitement and anticipation just before the main event.” Trailers include pre-recorded hype video. It will be played on the watch page in advance of the Premiere. The clip can range from 15 seconds to 3 minutes. It is similar in format to today’s film promos.
Google says that this can be used to “encourage viewers to set a reminder to tune into the Premiere. It ensures that the viewers are not met with just a static countdown. These two features are rolling out to eligible users starting today.
In the coming months, YouTube is also adding countdown themes. This will match with what is being premiered. It is available in a wide range of vibes and moods. Starting from “something calm, playful, dramatic, or sporty”.
Trailers and these other features come as YouTube Premiers are being used more commonly.
