YouTube has started showing users Google Shopping ads six years ago,
attempting to be a digital storefront. These ads used to allow users to
shop directly via the videos.
In October 2020, YouTube started asking creators to use YouTube software to tag and track products featured in the videos. The data will be linked to Google’s shopping tools and analytics.
YouTube spokesperson had confirmed that the platform was testing the features with a limited number of video channels and that creators would have control over the products that are displayed.
YouTube’s latest test run seems to be an expansion of the same idea to buy products from youtube directly. It is possible that youtube will roll out this new youtube feature to more users over time.
