Key Moments is a relatively new video search feature introduced by Google. With this functionality, videos appearing on Google search results are divided into different main moments, i.e. specific time frames or timestamps that can be easily accessed with a single click. Key Moment provides you with a quick overview of the key points covered in the video and enables you to quickly navigate through those parts of the video that interest you the most.
This is a particularly useful feature for us in education. The next time you search for video content to share with students in the classroom, you can first see its main moments. This will save you a lot of time and allow you to share only those parts of the video related to your search. Also, you no longer need to watch the entire video just to make sure that it’s not what you’re looking for, that the moment provides you with the information you need to decide whether to watch the entire video, parts of it, or not to bother with it all.
Key Moments works with YouTube videos that have timestamp data enabled through markup. Check This post To learn more about key moments.
