YouTube to Show More Local Language Content Based on Watch History


YouTube has added a new feature to its listings, which will enable users in India to see more local language content on its Home and Trending pages, based on your watch history. YouTube will automatically identify your preferred Indic language – from Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Punjabi, Tamil and Telugu – and display more content in that language on Home.

The language preference, the platform says, is based on a combination of your user interface language, your watch history, and your location. And if you think that YouTube has identified the wrong language for you, you can change your language. Or you can simply watch more videos in your language, and YouTube will gradually correct itself.
