What's new in YouTube Studio Content Manager beta

The features described in this article are available only to partners who use YouTube's Content ID matching system.

YouTube Studio Content Manager beta is the newer version of the current Content Manager ("Content Manager Classic"). We're in the process of redesigning the interface and integrating new features, capabilities, and workflows. Studio Content Manager beta will become the new home for the tools you need to manage your content and rights on YouTube.

When updates to the new Studio Content Manager beta are completed, we update this page with info about what's now available.
