YouTube found that one of the many ways people use the platform in India is to learn how to do something -- from day to day questions ('how to tie a tie') to bigger ones ('how to be an Indian fashion designer').

In fact, 71 per cent of online video viewers go first to YouTube to watch videos to learn something, the report said.

Sanjay Dutt's blockbuster biopic Sanju, played by Ranbir Kapoor, was the most trending movie trailer of the year with over 60 million views.

Among the most viewed ads at YouTube were Hyundai's 20 years of 'Brilliant Moments' ad, followed by Samsung's ad from Bixby voice assistant.

Variety writes that on the global front, Kylie Jenner's video tops the list. In February, the reality TV star and make up mogul had released an 11 minute long video titled, 'To Our Daughter', which detailed her pregnancy and the birth of Stormi. The video became YouTube's global #1 Top Trending Video of 2018, owing to 53 million views.
