With Yahoo actively trying to lure content creators away from YouTube, Google’s video streaming platform is doing its best to outperform the competition. Now, YouTube content creators have a few more newfangled features to help them make the most of their channel.
Here’s what YouTube has up its sleeve:
- Greater transparency: the team at YouTube says it wants to announce updated features ahead of time so they can get feedback from site users and see if they’re on the right track.
- Creator App: this new app will give content creators a way to manage their channel from their mobile phone
- Crowdfunding: YouTube wants its hand in the popular way to fund raise online. Instead of going through third-party sites like Subbable and Patreon, YouTube wants to make its own virtual tip jar so content creators can have access to funds directly from them.
- Improved site functions: YouTube says it is streamlining contents, closed captioning capabilities, adding to the audio library and giving creators the ability to monetize cover song videos.
