YouTube, the popular video streaming site has recently launched its new breaking news section feature in user feeds across all the platforms.

Unlike most roll-outs of YouTube features, this one is not restricted to a limited audience. A separate section will be dedicated to breaking news that will be on the homepage and mobile app.

However, there is a small section with all things urgent from a specific channel. However, this appears only certain times. Therefore you can't have access to breaking news anytime like do on Television news channel.

While it is yet to be ascertained if the new tab is a temporary feature or here to stay, and whether it will generate its content through Google's algorithm or manually curate the same, the feature could prove to be beneficial to Gen-Z, owing to YouTube's growing popularity among them. 

This is certainly a great step to keep aware and informed to the users. However, this should not irritate the users with its creepy and unuseful videos.
