YouTube Releases New Updates Including Tarot Card Readings And Mobile Data Story Among Others

YouTube has recently announced a series of customized readings for users interested in tarot cards. And that too with an enthusiastic involvement with some of the app’s leading creators.

The company made the announcement in a unique manner today where it displayed some of the familiar faces of the app as a part of its displays on the cards.

In its public announcement, YouTube says its tarot community is super excited to make the reveal, especially after seeing how much interest people have in this genre that continues to grow over the years.


Last year, we saw plenty of videos in the tarot section gain massive fame with views that crossed the 250 million mark in the country. To help celebrate the notion, the company has collaborated with leading creators as well as artists to release a more customized experience in the world of tarot card reading.

To simply gain access to this particular reading, all users need to do is click on the YouTube logo and select their preference.

The leading social media app has mentioned the name of several of its famous creators that will carry out the readings from a deck of cards that YouTube has customized with leading names or familiar faces.

This includes the likes of BLACKPINK and Safiya Nygaard, amongst so many other artists as well as famous content creators.

In the same way, the functionality hopes to incorporate a new soul card that’s calculated on the basis of your birth date while sharing some personal insights like character traits and other personal preferences in this world.

If users find it comfortable, they’re given the chance to share their readings across other social media platforms for a fun and interesting twist.

While some might find the new initiative by YouTube a little bit bizarre and over the top, those interested in the realm of wizards and unicorns will surely be captivated.

Remember that in 2020, Snapchat made headlines when it chose to add the unique functionality in the form of Astrological profiles. And the reason was the same as here, people were interested and they wanted to engage in it.

Considering the great amount of engagement attached to the world of mystic arts, we certainly think the new feature will be a fit for those that take it seriously. While for the rest, well, you can focus on the other update announced by the company recently.

Next up, YouTube is conducting trials for its mobile data story. The company says it’s on a mission to help its creators get a better understanding of their performance in the form of the app’s analytics.

Without a doubt, it’s hard sometimes to put all of the pieces of the puzzle together and that’s why the app is going the extra mile for adding convenience to its users.

For the update, creators will be provided with a mobile data story card that gives an analysis of where their viewership is falling and where it’s increasing.

Lastly, the app is busy experimenting with a channel page navigation bar. The whole idea is to better optimize users' experience when they’re navigating through channels. And they’re planning to do that by removing the navigation bar from the screen’s top under the creator profile on mobiles.

This not only allows for users to stay in context with the channel in a more meaningful manner but also provides so much easier access to like, subscribe, or join a membership.

The company is waiting for user feedback on both the trials being conducted as they claim both the new additions are sure to add a source of added convenience.
