YouTube’s Latest Updates: Create Beta App, Community Guidelines System, Payment Activity in Studio, and More | Creator Roundup

Published: December 8, 2023

Welcome back, creators! In our latest Creator Roundup, we’re excited to share some major updates from YouTube, including a new beta app for content creation, updates to the Community Guidelines, enhancements in payment management via the Studio app, and more intriguing features. Read on to catch up with the latest developments that are making waves.

YouTube Create Beta App Launches

We’re celebrating the release of the YouTube Create beta app! As a creative powerhouse, this app puts video editing at your fingertips, enabling you to produce Shorts and videos seamlessly on your mobile device. This intuitive, cost-free app comes packed with powerful features like video clipping, trimming, music overlay, voiceovers, audio clean-up, and a rich selection of text effects, stickers, GIFs, emojis, and transitions. Once your content is polished and ready, you can effortlessly upload it directly to YouTube. Although currently exclusive to Android users in select regions, we’re planning to expand its availability – so stay tuned for updates!

Community Guidelines System Overhaul

Your feedback provoked us to upgrade our Community Guidelines system for a fairer and more informative experience. Now, a first-time infraction triggers a warning, and you have 90 days to rectify the situation through policy training, assuming no additional violations occur. Worried about wrongful violations? Rest easy knowing that you can still appeal. We’re dedicated to nurturing a learning environment that equips you with essential policy insights to avoid future mishaps.

View Your Payment Activity with Ease

The Studio app now offers a streamlined approach for monetizing creators to observe their payment information. This includes updates on sent payments, progress toward upcoming payments, and a comprehensive 12-month payment history, all accessible via the ‘View payment activity’ section in the Earn area of the Youtube Studio App. While it’s currently a feature for creators compensated in US dollars through AdSense for single channels, we’re working on making it widely available. Stay updated on this feature’s rollout!

New Analytics Filter: New vs. Returning Viewers

Unlock deeper insights into your audience dynamics with our new Analytics filter. You can now distinguish between new and returning viewers to better evaluate video performance. Curious about implementing this filter? Simply venture into Advanced mode, select ‘New & Returning Viewers’ from the dropdown, choose your preferred view, click ‘Apply’, and you’re all set!

Wider YouTube Partner Program Access

The YouTube Partner Program is broadening its horizons! Now available in 24 additional countries, YPP is more accessible and comes with reduced eligibility hurdles. Enjoy benefits like direct audience engagement through YouTube Shopping, fan funding features such as Super Thanks, Super Chat, and Super Stickers, plus channel memberships. This expansion makes connecting with your audience and generating revenue streams easier than ever. For more details regarding the availability and eligibility criteria, check the provided links.

That’s all for this edition of the Creator Roundup. We’re keen to hear what you think, and we’d love suggestions for future topics, so feel free to leave us a comment. Let’s reconnect next month – and in the meantime, keep creating amazing content!
