Creators on YouTube can now A/B test up to three thumbnails for each video with a new feature that is finally available to all users. The feature, known as “Thumbnail Test & Compare” was announced around this time last year, but was originally only available to a handful of users. YouTube will disperse the thumbnails evenly across viewers and will collect and analyze data relating to watch times to choose the winning thumbnail for the video. Creators will still have the option to choose the thumbnail they prefer in the end, whether it was the winning thumbnail or not. Over the year-long course of testing this feature with a handful of creators, it has proven to be making a big difference in the platform and upping watch time numbers.
