YouTube is introducing new products that will allow learners to go deeper on subjects they are passionate about and creators to provide structured learning content.
Every day, people come to YouTube to learn something new. Whether it’s getting help on class assignments, studying a foreign language or exploring a different career, people are using YouTube to enrich their lives with new information. As a fan of 3blue1brown myself, I use YouTube to learn about math topics my children are interested in. A recent study found that 93% of viewers report using YouTube to gather information, so we’re announcing updates to make educational content even more accessible and interactive for learners while helping learning creators thrive on YouTube.
To improve the YouTube experience in educational environments, we're launching YouTube Player for Education — a new YouTube embedded player that shows content on commonly used education apps without distractions like ads, external links or recommendations.

YouTube Player for Education will also improve upon the existing YouTube embedded player in Google Classroom for an even better YouTube experience.
