A junior product owner should be able to communicate basic functionality of digital products to stakeholders. Identify three attributes (components/features/design choices/functionlity) on YouTube and what makes them useful for customers/users. You do not need to be technical in your answer, simply state different features of the product (youtube.com) and how it is useful for a customer/user. Use a couple of sentences for each feature & associated benefit. Your examples can come from the youtube website or the mobile application.
