Last March, YouTube began testing the “Jump Forward” feature, and it’s now making it available to a wider audience through for Premium subscribers.

After double-tapping to skip forward, you’ll see a button that says “Takes you to where most viewers usually skip.” The “Jump Forward” button appears as a pill in the bottom right corner for a few seconds before disappearing if you want to move forward for only 10 seconds.

Upon clicking, you’ll get an overlay “Skipping ahead to commonly skipped section” with the YouTube Premium badge, like “premium perks.”

YouTube leverages AI and watches data to determine the “best next spot.” When YouTube first previewed this possibility a few weeks ago, it was referred to as “a tiny experiment” automatically enabled for some users. It’s now available to a wider audience through the experiments page, though this page is only visible in the mobile app via Settings > New experimental features.
