Why should I use YouTube Studio beta?

This platform will be the new home for everything you need to manage your presence, grow your channel, interact with your audience, and make money as a creator.
We're building it to be more intuitive to use than Creator Studio Classic. At first, you’ll see fewer features than you’re used to, so you’ll likely still have to use Creator Studio Classic for some things. You’ll see more features added to YouTube Studio beta over time.
We want to get your feedback early on, so we can make this platform the best it can be for you, the creator. You can find instructions on how to send us feedback further down.

Send feedback & feature requests

One of our main goals for YouTube Studio beta is to get feedback from creators. We want to make sure we get the basics right by getting creators involved as early as possible.

We know that many features aren't available yet, so we’d like to know which ones you’re missing the most, suggestions for new features, and any issues you have.

Here's how you can let us know: 

"Send feedback" button

  1. In the left menu in YouTube Studio beta, click Send feedback
  2. Type in your feedback. The more specific your feedback, the more helpful it is for us. 
  3. Choose if you want to include a screenshot (you can highlight any information on the screen or remove personal information that's showing).
  4. Click Send. We won’t be able to reply to your submission, but we’ll definitely read and consider it.

Tell us why you're leaving

When you’re leaving new YouTube Studio to go back to the Creator Studio Classic, you might see an optional survey. Use this to tell us about the reason you’re going back and we'll take it into consideration.

Connect in the Creator Community

We have a discussion room in the YouTube Creator Community for YouTube Studio beta testers to chat with each other and the YouTube Studio team.
Contact our Creator Support team if you have issues.
