YouTube’s New ‘Related and Advanced’ Search Options Interface

YouTube has a new interface for related searches and advanced search options, that allow you to select multiple filters from a category and combine related searches. The new features were part of an experiment called “YouTube Topics” that tried to help users find videos.

For e.g., you can find long-form HD videos that’re available in the WebM format.

If you click on one of the queries from the “Explore” section, you’ll replace the original query. A more interesting option is to mouse over a query and click the “plus” icon: this way, you’ll refine your original search.

YouTube adds both filters and refinements to the query and separates them by comma. A search for [slow motion, hd, webm, high speed camera] includes two filters that are treated separately: “hd” and “webm”.

You can also add the name of a channel (example: [slow motion, @tpsfilmstudio]) or the name of a category (example: [slow motion, sports]).
