See what’s new and what’s next in our Creator Preview

By Matt Glotzbach

VP, Product Management

Twice a year in our global satisfaction survey, we ask you how we’re doing on a range of topics. Our most recent survey included a question about the top ways we could do a better job keeping you informed about what’s happening at YouTube.

Your biggest request? You want to hear about the new stuff we’re working on ahead of time, so you can tell us if we’re heading in the right direction. Well, your wish is our command. 

We’ve put together our first Creator Preview video, a run-down of what we’re working on to make YouTube better for you. We’ll be doing this regularly, so you can stay informed on where we’re headed.

In the coming months, you’ll hear more from us about:

  • A separate mobile app that puts the creator features you told us were most important to have in the palm of your hand, right when you need them 
  • A feature that allows fans to fund their favorite creators on YouTube 
  • A way to harness the power of the crowd to create captions and subtitles for your videos in 60+ languages

These features will join a few recent updates, including new comment management features, a way for artists to share in revenue from eligible cover song videos, and our ever-expanding Creator Academy.

Now, we want to know what you think of what we’re working on. Share your thoughts with us on Google+ or Twitter—we’ll be reading, responding and using your feedback to help make these upcoming launches even better.
