YouTube Now Offers Username Handles For Easier Mentions In Videos



YouTube Primetime Channels

Key Specifications:

  • YouTube launches a new Username handles feature for all creators.
  • Creators will be able to get their username handles by the next month.
  • Twitter is already providing this feature to their users


Google-owned Streaming Platform- YouTube launches a brand new feature of Username handles. This new feature will help the users simply discover and interact with creators and one another on the Google-owned streaming platform.

Handles will appear on channel pages and Shorts so that they will be instantly and consistently recognizable. It will soon be simpler and faster to mention each other in comments, community posts, video descriptions, and more.

YouTube launches a new Username Handles Feature

Given that @username handles are already present on social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook, YouTube users shouldn’t have too many problems adapting to the new format. But the “@” handles on YouTube will be a little different from channel names. While channel names aren’t unique – meaning that two different creators can have a channel with the same name – @usernames will be unique.

These handles will be made available to all YouTube creators. You don’t need to be a creator of a certain size or subscriber count to claim your own unique @handle, YouTube says. One thing to keep in mind is that channel names aren’t going away. YouTube says handles will join channel names as “another way” to identify a YouTube channel.

YouTube Studio releases the following statement:

“In most cases, if a channel already has a personalized URL, that will automatically become their default handle, or they can opt to change the handle for their channel as soon as the notification in YouTube Studio comes through”

The Availability of the feature depends on several factors

The Company reveals that it will be going to roll out the feature by the next month. It will notify creators when they can choose a handle for their channel. As per the reports, the timing of when a creator will get access to the handles selection process depends on several factors, including overall YouTube presence, subscriber count, and whether the channel is active or inactive.
