YouTube announced a new feature specifically tailored for creators, a “For you” section available from the Home tab. The new section has been designed to recommend YouTube users various content from the creator’s channel based on their watch history.
Announced this week, the new feature will be rolled out to viewers starting November 20, but YouTube creators should already be able to check it out and configure it as they see fit.
Even though YouTube is now rolling out the feature, not all creators might have access to it yet. But if you do, here is how you can edit your “For you” section:
- Sign in to YouTube Studio
- From the left menu, select Customization / Layout
- Scroll down to “Recommendations for your viewers,” and click More settings
- Select the content types you want to show and whether to only show content that was posted within the last 12 months
- Click Done
- Click Publish
In addition to that, creators can turn “For you” section on or off by following the same procedure, but instead of selecting the content type switch the section or on or off.
