YouTube has been developing a new feature which allows users to discover content using hashtags.

    Now when you click on a hashtag on YouTube, you will be taken to a dedicated landing page which will only show content with that exact hashtag. These pages will also keep the ‘best’ videos at the top, although the algorithm needs some work as it’s surfacing an odd mix of videos. Since this tool will prioritise the best content, it’s not ideal to find recent information. However, it could be a great resource for researching topics.
