YouTube explained in a blog post:

Users will be shown a 3-second preview of the video while browsing YouTube on desktop, giving you better sense for what each video is about.”

YouTube is updating its platform to incorporate moving thumbnails. These short clips are automatically selected fro the first half of videos using AI. Right now developers are still working to select the preview of their own.

Video preview feature is currently available on selected browsers that include Chrome versions 32 and Opera version 19. However this feature is not available on mobile devices.

YouTube is not the first streaming service to provide such feature. Many people mocked YouTube from stealing idea from somewhere else.
