Sources and links mentioned in the news:
YouTube has no plans to remove thumbnails.
With that said, auto-previews are used by many viewers to decide what to watch, and many videos have high abandonment in the first few seconds.
Putting effort into a compelling video intro (that your video delivers on) is smart.
