Mention creators in video titles and descriptions

When you mention another creator in your video title or description, their name will be linked to their channel page and they'll get a notification in their inbox.

A video that mentions your channel may appear to your fans as a recommendation, but the presence of your channel in that video doesn't increase the likelihood of it appearing to your fans.

Mention another creator

When creating or editing the title or description of a video, type the '@' symbol followed by their channel name, and then select it. For example, 'Learning world history with @Google'.

You can mention as many people as you want as long as their names fit within the character limit. Only creators with more than 1,000 subscribers can be mentioned.

Note: You can only mention someone from YouTube Studio on your computer. Editing a video with an existing mention on mobile will replace that mention from the video with text.

See mentions of your channel

  1. Open the YouTube app .
  2. From the bottom, tap Inbox.
  3. From the drop-down menu, tap Notifications and then Mentions of your channel.

Turn mention notifications on or off

Not every mention triggers a notification – only the important ones do, like when a creator with a similar or higher number of subscribers mentions you.
