With General Elections now underway in many regions of India, YouTube is taking some new measures that are aimed at adding more transparency and context for news content on the platform. It is now rolling out additional information panels in English and Hindi language, which will enable viewers to understand if a channel owned by a news publisher is “funded in whole or in part" by a government or if it is a “public broadcast service”. A link to the publisher’s Wikipedia page will also be provided and all this new information will be available on the watch panel of all the videos on a news publisher’s YouTube channel.
