Mentions let you include the name or handle of another channel in your video’s title or description. When you mention another channel, they’ll get a notification in their inbox – learn more.
The mention of your channel name or handle in someone else’s video doesn’t increase the likelihood of their video appearing to your fans.
Mention another creator
To add a mention when you’re creating or editing the video title or description:
- Type the "@" symbol followed by a channel name or handle.
- Choose the channel name or handle from a recommended list.
You can mention as many creators as you want as long as their names fit within the character limit.
When viewers tap a mention, a creator info panel will enter from the bottom of the screen. This panel will share info about the channel, including a description and their latest videos.
Find mentions of your channel
- Open the YouTube app .
- Tap the Notification bell at the top of your screen.
- Choose the Mentions tab.
Change mention notifications
Not every mention triggers a notification. Important ones, like when a creator with a similar number of subscribers mentions you, will notify you.
