YouTube now has color differentiation for videos, but so far only for some users

According to online sources, YouTube is testing a new feature with which users will be able to sort videos in their feed by color, the shades of which are predominant in the videos. Some users of the YouTube mobile application noticed the appearance of a proposal to sort videos by red, blue or green colors.

A YouTube spokesperson confirmed that the feature is experimental and is currently available to a limited number of users of the YouTube mobile app on Android and iOS devices. However, he did not specify why the new function was being developed and when it could become available to a wide range of platform users.

Using a color filter will not change the entire feed of videos on the main page. Instead, color-matched videos appear in a new feed located at the top of the app interface. How exactly video filtering occurs is not entirely clear.

Perhaps the algorithm analyzes the colors that are present in the thumbnail of a particular video, or it processes the entire file to determine which shades dominate in it. In any case, the new function will not allow you to filter videos by topic or content, limiting yourself to selecting content based on the aesthetic component.
