YouTube is introducing its pre-publish checks tool on the mobile app, which it had first launched for the desktop version last year in March. The tool is designed to help creators ensure that their content is fully eligible for monetization and free of any violative issues before it is uploaded.
The tool assesses content for potential violations like copyright issues and ad suitability, so that creators can take necessary action towards any issue that is found. This will save them from the trouble of encountering these problems after their content is published, which often leads to penalties and reduction in money-making capacity.
There are a few things to note about this feature in the mobile app, which differ from the desktop version of the feature. These include videos being required to be enabled for monetization on the Studio app before the monetization check runs on them, and being uploaded and processed on the main app before the copyright claims check runs on them. YouTube will also notify creators once the checks are finished.
The checks tool has been quite useful to creators on desktop, therefore bringing it to the mobile app is equally valuable. Creators can expect to see these tools on their mobile app over the next couple of weeks, according to YouTube.
