YouTube is testing a timestamp button for easier commenting

Adding a timestamp to your comment on a YouTube video can be useful. Say, if you're pointing out an editing mistake, being able to tell the creator exactly where to find it would certainly help. The process could be easier, though. Checking the timestamp manually and then inputting it correctly is a chore, and often the YouTube app doesn't recognize what I've done anyway.
