YouTube has allowed creators to see how many people are subscribing to their channel with a new real-time counter. This is reported in a new video on the Creator Insider channel.
Previously, this data could only be obtained using third-party tools. They will now be available on YouTube Creator, in the Analytics section.
To view this data, you need to go to the “Analytics” tab in the desktop version of the Creative Studio and click on “Current statistics” on the “Live” card on the right side of the screen.
Under the subscriber count, YouTube will also show you how the channel has developed over time – how the number of its subscribers has changed. Now channel owners will be able to answer the question when the next milestone in their development was reached, states SearchEngines.
YouTube also added congratulatory animations for the stages when the audience reached 100, 1000, 10,000, 100,000, 1 million, 10 million and 100 million subscribers.
The update has already been launched for all authors in the Creative Studio on desktops.
NIX Solutions reminds that earlier this month YouTube added data on new and returning viewers to the analytics section and updated the Creative Studio mobile app.
