With the hashtags now increasingly being used as part of trends, the latest to join in the bandwagon is the Google-owned platform YouTube.
The video site has now added support for hashtags that will start showing up for users on top of a video’s title and in the description.
Hashtags will be visible on top of only the videos in which the uploader has added them.
According to Google, this feature is not currently available on iOS.
This will essentially mean that the users on the video-sharing platform can now also search for videos by just entering relevant hashtags into the search bar.
As for adding hashtags in a video, YouTube uploaders can simply the phrase preceded by the ‘#’ sign in the video title or description.
In both places, hashtags will be hyperlinked automatically. And, when there are no hashtags in the title, the first three in the description will be shown on top, by default.>
