Classic features going away
Access to Creator Studio Classic is gradually going away over the next few months. Some classic features won’t be built into YouTube Studio. When your channel no longer has access to Creator Studio Classic, you’ll no longer be able to use these features.
Upload time on your Videos page
The upload time of your video won’t show on your Videos page
in YouTube Studio.
You’ll still see the date that your video was uploaded. You can also sort videos by date.
HD icon on your Videos page
You won’t see the HD indicator
next to HD videos on your Videos page
in YouTube Studio. This doesn’t change your video’s resolution. We're working on bringing this feature to YouTube Studio in the coming months.
To see if your uploaded video is in HD, check the quality settings on your video’s watch page.
Some advanced search features
Most search and filter options are available in YouTube Studio. You won’t see the options to filter by:
- Upload time
- List of video IDs
- Video length
- Videos that don’t contain certain text
These options are going away as we add more impactful filters, like a filter for the number of views on a video. You can still sort by date and number of views.
Previously, you could see your notifications from Creator Studio Classic by clicking the bell at the top-right
. This inbox focuses primarily on notifications from channels you’ve subscribed to, and won’t show in YouTube Studio.
You can still open the notifications inbox from YouTube.com. We’re working on a better inbox for notifications about your channel.
You won’t have the option to customize your dashboard in YouTube Studio.
We’re working to improve the dashboard experience in YouTube Studio.
Comment and video cards on the dashboard
You won’t see cards on the YouTube Studio dashboard for new comments or new videos. We're working on adding these cards in the coming months.
To review comments, open the Comments page in YouTube Studio. Use the filter bar on the Comments page to view a subset of comments. You can filter by specific text in comments, by comments you haven’t responded to, by comments with questions, and more.
YouTube Studio automatically shows a snapshot of your most recent video’s performance on your dashboard.
Video statistics privacy setting
Previously, creators could choose to show statistics on their video’s watch page, like watch time and share. In 2018, these statistics went away on the video watch page, but creators still saw the option to enable them in Creator Studio Classic. You won’t see this option in YouTube Studio.
This setting has had no impact since 2018. It never changed whether your video’s views, likes, and dislikes were public.
Domain or app filtering
The “Domain or app filtering” setting lets you select or block specific websites or apps from embedding your videos. Once Creator Studio Classic goes away, this setting won’t be available.
Bulk changes to video syndication
lets you choose whether to make your videos available on all platforms, or only monetized platforms. You won’t be able to change the syndication of multiple videos at once in YouTube Studio.
You can still change the syndication of an individual video.
Google Photos import
You’ll no longer see the option to import videos from Google Photos.
To upload a video in your Google Photos, download the video from photos.google.com
to your device. Then, upload
it to YouTube.
360º heatmap report
The 360º heatmap report will be removed from Creator Studio Classic and won’t be available in YouTube Studio. The heatmap report wasn’t frequently used, and we’re removing it to focus on other features.
