Google announced it's now adding the ability to find specific, or "Key Moments" from videos in Search, and this is especially useful for long videos.

Creators provide timestamps in the videos which means a searcher can run a quick scan of the video content, without going through the whole video.

The youtube ranking algo is skewed a bit towards longer videos. I expect this change will further increase the avg video length.
