4 can't miss moments from our Made on YouTube event
Last week, we unveiled a lot of news at our Made on YouTube event — a day packed with announcements and interviews to set the tone for our next chapter in celebrating the heart and soul of YouTube: creators. But just in case you missed it, we’ve rounded up the biggest moments from the event to bring you highlights you simply can’t miss.
But don't take our word for it: hear from our own YouTube Creator Liaison, Rene Ritchie, on his five takeaways from our big event.
1. Neal announces a massive YouTube Partner Program update for Shorts creators
Kicking off the event, our own Neal Mohan took the stage to announce an exciting update to the YouTube Partner Program so that Shorts creators can start monetizing their content after they reach 1,000 subscribers and 10 million Shorts views over the span of 90 days. This will allow creators — short or long-form — to earn money no matter what format their content thrives in.
2. Revenue sharing comes to Shorts
Part of being in the YouTube Partner Program means access to fan-funding features like Super Chat and Channel Memberships. But now, Shorts creators can also make money on their content thanks to a new revenue sharing model to boost potential earnings.
3. “For aspiring creators there’s never been a better time for creativity than now” — Colin and Samir
Creator duo Colin and Samir joined Tara Walpert Levy to talk about why monetization on Shorts is game-changing for the creator economy and that revenue sharing makes it feel like a true partnership.
4. Creator Music takes the fuss out of music copyright confusion
With our new tool, creators can search for songs they want to use in their long-form videos that won’t penalize their revenue. There’s even a new revenue sharing option between creators and artists so creators don’t have to pay upfront to use their favorite tunes.
