YouTube to warn Android users before they post offensive comments


Team Udayavani, Dec 4, 2020, 4:03 PM IST

YouTube has launched a feature that will warn users when their comments may be offensive to others, giving them the option to “reflect before posting”.

The feature will only remind the users so that they can edit their comments. However, it won’t stop the users from posting the comments. As of now, the feature is available to Android users.

Users who post hateful comments will see a pop-up banner to remind them if they really want to do so. Commenters can then choose to edit the original comment or post the comment in its current state.

According to Hindu Business Line, YouTube has also added better filtering settings for the creators in YouTube Studio. The new filters will try to find the harmful and offensive comments on their videos and will automatically be flagged for review. It will also remove the harmful comments from the queue so that people cannot read them.
