Google explained how to use the feature saying  “When you type a related word into your search bar and click on ‘Resume your research’ or visit the Chrome History Journeys page, you see a list of relevant sites you visited and can quickly pick up where you left off, whether it was earlier today or weeks ago.

YouTube’s 2022 Roadmap Includes Shopping Features, Shorts And More

YouTube will be introducing new tools to help creators make more money from their content, including monetization features for YouTube Shorts, e-commerce function for YouTube videos, & tools that would let YouTubers sell content as non-fungible tokens, or NFTs.

YouTube is also introducing a handful of other features this year that will help creators generate new content. New insights will be added to YouTube Studio that the company says will help creators understand how viewers are interacting with their contact and help spark ideas for new videos.

Additionally, YouTube this year will roll out the ability for creators to go live together, once again boosting interactivity and working around the problem of coming up short for things to talk about with viewers.
