Skip sending upload notifications

When you upload a YouTube video, you can decide whether the video will send notifications to your subscribers. Viewers get a maximum of 3 upload and live stream notifications from each channel in a 24-hour period. If you upload more than 3 videos in a day, you can disable some notifications to choose which videos have notifications.

Disable upload notifications

  1. Using a computer, sign in to YouTube. 
  2. Upload a video.
  3. Enter video details and click MORE OPTIONS
  4. Uncheck the box next to "Publish to subscriptions feed and notify subscribers".
  5. Finish uploading your video.

Subscribers won’t receive notifications or see your upload in their Subscription feed. On the “Bell notifications sent” card in YouTube Analytics, you’ll see 0% bell notifications sent.

It’s not possible to disable public live stream video notifications. However, unlisted live streams will not send notifications.
