Switch Your YouTube Channel to the New Design by 7th March
As we told you in December, we want you to have more options for how you organise and showcase your videos on your YouTube Channel, so you can continue to grow your audience. For that reason we launched a new design for Channels, which allows you to select one of four templates to better fit your needs as a creator, as well as customisations to keep your viewers engaged and coming back.
In order to provide your viewers with a consistent experience across YouTube, we’d like you to switch your current Channel to the new design by 1 March. We will automatically convert all Channels on the site to the new design on 7 March, so update yours before then to make sure that it is set up to your liking.
If you haven’t already, you can opt in by clicking the blue “Try the new design” button at the top of your Channel page. You may also switch back to the old Channel design repeatedly before 7 March by clicking the “Switch Back” button on the appearance tab of the Edit Channel menu on your new Channel.
To help you get your Channel fully ready, we have resources within the Help Centre, including a Channel Migration Checklist.
Your feedback on the new design has been tremendously helpful, as we continue to make refinements to improve both your and your viewers’ experiences.
We hope that you have a successful transition to this new design.
