Interact with creators on Community posts

Community posts allow you to interact even more with your favorite creators. You can now reply to creator polls, pictures, GIFs, and more on YouTube.

After a creator posts, you can respond by commenting, liking, and voting on polls. Community posts are available on the Community tab of the creator's channel, and they may also be on the Home feed and Subs feed. Community is still in beta and we're testing with different audiences.

Note: As creators get the Community tab, it will replace the Discussion tab. For 30 days after creators get the Community tab, you can edit any comments you made on the Discussion tab. 

To edit your comments:

  1. Sign in to YouTube on your computer.
  2. Go to your comment history.

Sign in to the YouTube app to reply to Community posts, reply to Community polls, and manage Community post notifications.
