Add YouTube video approvers for your organization

As an administrator, you can allow certain users to approve YouTube content. If you use Classroom, you can allow verified Classroom teachers to approve YouTube content. After a video or channel is approved, it's available to all signed-in users in your organization.

Approvers have unrestricted YouTube access. They can play any video and read comments. You can always review and remove approved videos and channels in the Google Admin console.
