YouTube’s Studio mobile app is getting new updates to
provide users with enhanced ability to manage their channels and monitor their performance
across both mobile and desktop.
One of the additions includes new search filters for
comments which are meant to maximize engagement through different ways of interacting
with fans. The new filters are: Response Status that filters comments based on whether
you have responded to them or not, Contains Questions that filters comments on
the basis of them containing questions, Subscriber Count that filters comments based
on the commenter having a certain number of subscribers, Subscriber Status that
filters comments based on whether the commentor has publicly subscribed to your
channel, Member status that filters comments based on whether the commentor is a
channel member, and lastly Search, that filters comments on the basis of them
containing a specific word that you may want to search for.
The comment filters are an important addition, especially for channels that receive a great amount of comments. In addition to this, a new Analytics element has been added to align the Studio app in a much better way with the desktop version, with data like insights into returning viewers, comparative view counts and more.
The Studio app is also providing video monetization options
and has more currency options in the display to help creators better understand
their monetization progress.
As far as the app’s design is concerned, the icon has been renewed
to make it appear similar to YouTube’s other apps. Moreover, some of the function
tabs have been moved to the new bottom bar, as a way to increase accessibility,
as they were previously listed in the three dots function menu.
The main focus behind the app’s update is to provide better
access to users in terms of managing their content on the go and providing
greater working flexibility, considering that more and more people have started
to manage their channels remotely.
