Google, since last year is experimenting a new feature on YouToube, that instead of copy and paste a video link into an email, social or messaging app to share, enable users a better way to share videos directly on YouTunbe.
“We’ve been experimenting with a better way to share videos on YouTube since last year. Thanks to all your feedback, we made some improvements and are now ready to roll out this new sharing feature to all users globally,” wrties the team.
These shared videos are all accessible through a new tab on the YouTube mobile app, “making it easier than ever to catch up on videos your friends have shared or to show them a few of your own favorites.”
In addition, using this new feature, “you can not only share and receive videos in the app, but also, you can chat about them right on the YouTube, or reply with another video, as well as invite others to the conversation,” and more.
Also, you can create new group, then start share your videos. And of course, if you want to continue sharing videos through other apps, you can still do that too.
Of late, Google is working on addressing concerns from advertisers around where their ads are placed.
Watch this video to see, how the new sharing feature works on YouTube app:
Though, the new controls and guidelines helped many creators and advertisers seen their earnings return to normal, however, some videos classified as not suitable for all advertisers, limited the number of ads served on those videos.
And, couldn’t be appealed because of missing ability in Video Manager. Now, the team is rolling out new icons to give an ability to appeal “misclassified videos” as well as “a more detailed understanding of how each and every video on a channel is monetizing.” As always, you can also go into YouTube Analytics to see your revenue report for any video.
When available, a notification in Creator Studio will appear. “The status of your appeal will now be in blue text below the monetization icon,” writes the team. “If your appeal is successful, more ads may be served on your videos.”
The following icons will be availble in the next few weeks:
- this icon represents videos that can earn money from a broadest set of advertisers and from YouTube Red.
- while this icon indicates the video is classified as either not suitable for all advertisers, so it’ll have “limited or no ads”, or has been fully demonetized as it fails to meet advertising guidelines. However, it’s still eligible to earn in YouTube Red.
- and, this icon indicates video that will receive “no revenue from ads or YouTube Red.” Because, any of the following reasons, copyright strike, Content ID claim, or Community Guidelines strike.
If you think your video is suitable for all brands and audiences, you can either appeal or use the monetization troubleshooter to see what actions are available for your videos.
