We’re excited to share a unique opportunity with you. The team working on YouTube recommendations would like to hear questions and feedback about your experience and in return, they’ll share their knowledge with you.

Who is the YouTube recommendations team?
The YouTube recommendations team is responsible for the recommendations you see on your Home feed, in the Up Next list of suggested videos, and for YouTube Mixes, which provides endless playlists personalized for you. Several Product Managers from the team will be here to answer your questions.

Here are some potential questions you could ask the team:
  • I’ve recently created a channel and have been uploading videos for months. I’ve had good growth in views in the beginning but now it looks like YouTube is recommending my content less. What is changing with the algorithm?
  • I keep on pressing not interested, but similar videos continue to show up on my Home feed.  Is there anything else I can be doing to fine tune my recommendations?
  • Why do my Up Next suggested videos have so many videos that are not related to the video I’m watching?

Starting today: you can submit your questions and feedback related to recommendations using the comments below and on Friday February 8th at 9:30am PST, our YouTube recommendations team will be here answering as many questions as possible – right here on this thread.

Please mind! The team will only be addressing questions related to recommendations on YouTube in relation to the Home page, Up Next suggestions in autoplay, and YouTube Mixes. Questions around search, subscriptions, trending, notifications, among other non-recommendations related questions will not be addressed because this team only works on recommendations and are not in a position to answer questions in other areas. As such, we will be removing any non-recommendations, off-topic questions.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Community Manager, TeamYouTube

 A lot of the videos you recommend are really not very professional.  The people in them ramble and are self-indulgent and don't really know what is important and what isn't.  They love themselves very much. They also do a lot of what engineers do which is  they say you but the thing in the thing that is near the other thing, which does not help the rest of us.

It would be great with an "in player" like button, for videos embedded on other sites such as Reddit or Facebook, so I don't have to go to another page to like a video.
