YouTube Have Finally Added Thumbnail Preview

Finally, Youtube has added thumbnail previews on desktop view, you can now mouse over any video thumbnail on the website and get a 3-second preview of the video contents. This works on certain browsers only for now (Chrome and Opera) and is not available yet on mobile.

Previously. YouTube lack thumbnail preview which made it difficult to gauge the content of the video without clicking it, even though this technology has been available on some video sites for years now. This has been taken advantage of by content creators by using "clickbait" images for the thumbnails to entice viewers into clicking on their videos by having an exaggerated or even unrelated image in the thumbnail. With previews that now pull frames from random points in the video, users can see roughly what they are getting into before clicking.

But this will not stop the click baiters for long. As the last line in YouTube's support post says, "Currently, creators are not able to select the preview that is shown." The "currently" part states that YouTube might allow content creators to set their own previews for thumbnails later on.
