Add a custom subscribe button

You can use a branding watermark to embed your channel logo across all videos on your channel. When you add a watermark, viewers can directly subscribe to your channel if they hover over the watermark when using YouTube on a computer. It won't show to users who are already subscribed to your channel.

To feature a video or playlist, use the instructions for featured content.

Availability

  • The channel watermark is currently available in landscape view on mobile devices and computers.
  • Channel watermarks do not appear on custom YouTube chromeless players.

Image guidelines

We recommend that you use a transparent background rather than a solid one and include just one color in the image. This will help the image be less distracting, especially on small screens.

Branding watermark metrics

You can get metrics in the Annotations report in YouTube Analytics.
