The Rundown: YouTube is testing two new AI tools — a chatbot that can summarize videos and answer questions and a new AI feature to categorize video comments by topic.
The chatbot aims to provide more info on videos, recommend related content, and even quiz users on educational videos.
The comment summarization groups comments into topics using AI, helping creators better understand discussions on their content.
It's currently limited to English, Android, US, and Premium subscribers only, and comes as part of a broader push by Google to integrate AI across its products.
Why it matters: The new features to YouTube showcase Google’s continued push for AI (as we patiently wait for Gemini) — helping both fans and creators cut through the noise to have a better experience. Will every piece of content on the internet one day have its own chatbot?

The Rundown: Figma just integrated AI into its online whiteboard FigJam, helping users instantly visualize ideas and plans with customizable templates.
New features like Generate and Sort aim to automate tedious design tasks, while FigJam AI summarizes sticky note contents and auto-groups them into themes.
Users can generate templates for workflows, meetings, charts, etc., through simple text prompts.
The new features expand on the existing integration with ChatGPT-based Jambot.
Our thoughts: Design and collaboration are two areas where AI can turbocharge productivity — and automating and consolidating tedious tasks can free up creatives for higher-level work. Figma has been on fire in the AI design space.
