Google search will now help you find Key Moments in Video.
When you want to find some specific information, and when you use google search, it will try its best to get the exact result and will provide results in less than seconds by reading database with the help of algorithms.
But sometimes, Google says, the information that user searches will be found only in videos, and it will be a very difficult to retrieve the exact information from the video that user is searching for . But Google doesn't want to leave that as it is, it developed new technology which will retrieve the search result from videos. So, if you are searching for one particular word and if that moment can be found in video it will directly display that particular word arriving time, instead of actual video making search more friendly.
Starting today you can find key moments within videos and get to the information you’re looking for faster, with help from content creators. When you search for things like how-to videos that have multiple steps, or long videos like speeches or a documentary, Search will provide links to key moments within the video, based on timestamps provided by content creators. You’ll be able to easily scan to see whether a video has what you’re looking for, and find the relevant section of the content. For people who use screen readers, this change also makes video content more accessible ,Google said in its blog
