Every year, hundreds of YouTubers gather together to greet and meet their thousands of fans who travel across the country just to hang out with these online stars at Vidcon conventions. For all who don’t know what Vidcon is, it’s a multi-genre online video annual conference organized by Hank and John Green of the popular channel VlogBrothers which started 7 years ago.
YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki took this opportunity to announce series of YouTube updates at VidCon this week and also disclosed that the Google-owned video site now has staggering 1.5 billion logged-in monthly users. Among these series of updates, YouTube announced a sneak peek at YouTube Studio Beta which is essentially the revamped version of “Creator Studio” that we use daily to upload and manage YouTube videos.

Updated Comments Section:
Comments are a great way to improve the engagement ratio of YouTube videos which helps in monetization. After launching Pinned Comments, Creator Hearts, and Creator Usernames which helps the creator to highlight the “liked” comment, and pin it to the top; YouTube is launching another way to engage with YouTube community.
This new update helps the YouTube creator to browse comments according to topics being discussed. In this way, YouTube will automatically highlight the unique and interesting topics about the conversations.
Make Money through Super Chat
Super Chat is a highlighted message in the chat stream that stands out from the crowd to get even more of your favorite creator’s attention during Live Streams. This feature also allows viewers to pay real money in order to have their messages stand out in the chat stream.
YouTube can also monopolize this into an active inbuilt feature in YouTube’s revamped “Creator Studio” as over 65% of the YouTube channels have more than doubled their income through Live Stream.
