YouTube Copyright Match Tool To Detect Re-uploaded Videos
In YouTube news, they are rolling out a YouTube copyright match tool.
This new tool, which is available under YouTube Studio > Copyright, can detect others who have uploaded your YouTube videos to their channel.
Why The YouTube Copyright Match Tool Matters For Your Business
How would you like to know when other YouTube channels are using your content as their own?
The YouTube copyright match tool makes it extremely easy to see who is using your content and how much they match.
Instead of having to search through YouTube videos, you can quickly identify ones that match your content and request video removal.
When you request to have a video removed, you can send a 7-day notice, ask that they remove the content now and more via a form.
As a business owner, you work hard building your business. Why let someone destroy it and capitalize on the YouTube videos that you've created?
By using the YouTube copyright match tool, you can quickly identify channels who have uploaded part of or your entire video and have them removed in little to no time!
You can access the YouTube copyright match tool for your channel here.

WhatsApp Reverse Image Search
In WhatsApp news, they are rolling out reverse image search.
This will allow you to see if an image that is shared in WhatsApp is old or fake news.
Why WhatsApp Reverse Image Search Matters For Your Business
WhatApp is a great platform for communicating with customers, especially overseas. Unfortunately, there is also a lot of fake news that is shared as well.
By adding reverse image search, you can quickly look-up an image to see if it's real or fake and then decide whether you want to share it or not.
As a business, being able to reverse image search from WhatsApp, can save you embarrassment because you can check if your images are originals, from another event, etc.
WhatsApp is currently rolling out reverse image search. To see if you have it, update your version of WhatsApp from your device's app store.

Fast-Forward Through Instagram Videos
In Instagram news, they are testing fast-forwarding through Instagram videos.
Why Fast-Forwarding Through Instagram Videos Matter For Your Business
Instagram is testing a feature that we are surprised hasn't made it's way to their platform - fast-forwarding through videos.
Previously, if you wanted to fast-forward in a video, you had to start it again at the beginning.
Now you can scrub forward or backwards to different points of an Instagram video.
While they have this feature in IGTV, it's not there for normal Instagram video uploads.
The reason this update matters for your business is that without it, you could be generating inaccurate results in your Instagram analytics, otherwise, if you're looping your videos.
While this feature isn't released yet, we hope it comes to the Instagram platform soon.
In the meantime, you can learn more about fast-forwarding through Instagram videos here.
