New Features For Channels: Category Browsing & Comments Moderation

By The YouTube Team

New features for channels we hope you dig:


All channels are now categorized so you can more easily find your favorite creators and videos. On the Channels page, under All, you can browse for channels uploading videos to categories like Film & Animation, News & Politics, Sports, etc. You can also use this functionality to filter your results to show Partners only.


Now you can moderate all comments other users leave on your channel page.

To turn this feature on, go to the Edit Channel Info page in My Account. There you can change your settings to allow comments from "Friends" or "Everyone" to display on your channel automatically or only once you have approved them. All comments waiting for your approval are highlighted on the "see all" page of your channel comments. Once you have chosen which individual comments you want to approve, click the "Approve Selected" button. If your email options are set to notify you of new bulletins or comments on your channel, the link in your email brings you to the page where you can approve selected comments.

We're always interested in hearing your feedback! So, if you've got something to say about the aforementioned features, please leave a comment on this post or join active discussions on our Community Help Forums. You will find pinned topics for the site improvements listed above in the Feeback & Suggestions section.

Holler at us,
