YouTube has launched a new dedicated search results page that will allow users to find videos using hashtags.
The new exclusive homepage for hashtagged videos will display an organized section with either videos using the tag users searched for or an associated tag.
The update was announced by YouTube on its support page and will work for both desktop and mobile versions of the video sharing platform.
“Starting today, anyone searching for a specific hashtag on YouTube, be it the desktop app or the mobile app, will see a new dedicated page that only contains videos with the hashtag, which are sorted to keep the best videos on top, ”YouTube said.
Users can access these pages by clicking on the automatically generated hashtags that appear during search. They will be redirected to the new section showing the number of videos that used the tag and the number of channels that uploaded content tagged with.
YouTube introduced the hashtag video search feature in 2018, but the search included content using the hashtag in the video and other related content.
