Here’s how to enable the new Card feature.
First you need to visit any of your YouTube video and you will see a new icon [!] beside the annotation button hover into that and you will the card.
Once you click that it will goto the main dashboard of the card similar with the way you put annotations on video but this time its minimal. You just need to put the cursor on the right time then choose which card do you want to add (Associated Website, Merchant, Fundraising, Video or Playlist).
Every card has its own options feel free to experiment with it and enjoy the new interactive way to drive more views and visit to your videos and other links.
Here is the actual look when you applied it on a video. it’s a very catchy widget on the right side and has a better look and showing more information.
The card also has its own analytics which you can check if the cards that you implemented is doing well , it’s located in the analytics section below the annotations.
