YouTube has a new feature coming up, as the video-sharing site will over the next few weeks be announcing handles to make it simpler for members of the community to find and connect with one another. Your handle will now be unique to your channel and will be how people mention you in comments, community posts and more.
Here’s What You Need To Know:
YouTube is gradually rolling out the ability to choose a handle for all channels over the coming weeks, and you will receive another email and a notification in YouTube Studio when you’re able to choose yours.
In most cases, if you already have a personalised URL for your channel, YouTube has reserved this for you as your handle. If you want a different handle from the one that they’ve reserved, you can change it. If you don’t already have a personalised URL today, you’ll also be able to choose a handle for your channel.
Starting on 14 November 2022, if you haven’t yet selected a handle for your channel, YouTube will automatically assign you a handle, which you can change in YouTube Studio if you’d like to.
In the meantime, learn more about handles and all the things that you’ll be able to do with them on the app.
